    hey guys. so i have a macbook pro that has stopped working. im still trying to figure out why. i think its the logic board :-(

    but i pulled the hard drive and threw it in an external hard drive enclosure. I sadly am using a windows computer until i can figure out whats wrong. I was wondering if anyone knew how to get a PC to read the drive so i can get some files off of it??

    thanks

    All Macs use Mac OS Extended (HFS+) for their system HDD. That is why you need MacDrive or HFSExplorer, as Windows can't read HFS+ natively.
