so my iMac died a few days ago, at first it would randomly shut down but now it won't turn back on. I was told by the apple support people to bring it in to an Apple Store for repair. I wanted to backup/erase some conifdential files i have on my iMac hard drive. So i bought an external S-ATA enclosure and tried connecting the iMac hard drive to my PC (only have one Mac). The problem is that my PC doesn't recognize that there is any new hardware attached when i plug in the USB drive. Is it because the hard drive is from a mac? I have MacDrive and thought that i would be able to access mac formatted hard drives on a PC using that software. But macdrive can't access a drive that the pc doesn't even regcognize is there. is what i'm doing not even possible? one thing i was thinking of is what the jumper setting on the iMac hard drive should be? could this be why the PC isn't recognizing the external drive? -on a side note, is it even worth trying to do this? or can i trust my data at Apple when being repaired?
