    hi guys,

    i have a few important disks of work that i saved when i had a PC. I recently tried them in the Mac book pro hoping to then save them on the mac but it will not let me open them i guess somthing to do w/ the formatting.

    Anyone know ho i can get these disks to open on my mac?

    When you say "disk" .... are these CD-Rs, or what are they? Depending on how you made them, it's possible you were using some kind of multi-session writing setup on the PC, and you never finalized the discs. There are probably lots of ways to fix it, but it would seem like the easiest one would be to put the CD-Rs back in a Windows PC and just copy the files onto a USB flash drive.
