    Hey guys!

    I got a video editing project due monday, I thought the school labs would be opened saturday for me to work on this but the labs are closed. My files that I need to work on are on a firewire drive and part of it is partioned for Mac computers, any way I can at least get one of those files off the Mac partion from a Windows PC?

    i know - macs can read ntfs and fat, but unfortunately pc's can't read mac drives.

    there might be some sort of software out there that might help you, but i've never heard of anything.

    If you ahve MAC OSX disc, you can set install Virtual Server and set up a Virtual Mac on your PC, then at least you'd have it, but you'd still have issues of getting it into Windows... Possibly posting it to a fileshare somewhere then downloading it in Windows?

    Well, not a bad idea Yoda, my firewire drive has 2 partions, one for PC and another for Mac, on the Mac computers, my PC partion is still displayed, so I can just move the file from one partion to the other. Only thing I would need to do though is install this Virtual Mac.

    if your mac's to hand this'll be the best way.

    though you might have difficulties if your video files are over 4 gigs....

    The movie file is less than 20 megs

    The only problem I may have with the file is that it's in a Quick Time Conversion format. I'm hoping Adobe Premiere can still display it so I can resume my editing. The orignal program I used was Final Cut, but the video is already rendered but I need to just finalize some things.

    Burn a CD. Use a flash drive. If you can email the file to yourself you can then download it on the windows machine that might work too.

    I also found MacDrive but it costs money:

    I concur with Gigatron_2005. Burn it onto a CD.
