I have a client that has publishing data, about 250 gigs worth, on a Mac formatted firewire 400 only, external hard drive, give to her by her creative art person. The client needs the data to be used by her PC. So, I am trying to move the data from the firewire drive on to a new USB external that the client can access. So far, I can't find a format for the USB drive that will allow the Mac formatted files to be seen on a PC. I’ve tried Fat32 and Mac OS Extended with out any luck. Anybody have an idea?

Is the problem that you have no firewire connection to your computer and can't get the files off of the Firewire drive at all? Or is it that you have transferred the files to the USB drive but you just don't see them when looking at the USB drive once all the files have transferred?
