    So I'm running Vista Ultimate x64, and wanted to snag something from my external HD, however my external is formatted in HFS+ (whatever its called), which Windows can't read. I was going to use MacDrive (v. 7.10, the latest), but it isn't 64-bit supported. Thoughts?

    Low and behold, after doing a little research: http://hem.bredband.net/catacombae/index2.html HFSExlorer works! Just make sure you have the latest version of Java (http://www.java.com/en/).

    EDIT: Ok, it can't seem to find any file systems to load. So the problem remains. You'd think the makers of MacDrive would expect users to be running *gasp* Macs, which are for the most part 64-bit, and a majority will try/run 64-bit Vista (or 64-bit XP if they're masochistic like that). Thoughts?
