What version of Corel draw were you using, Illustrator can open some versions of Corel Draw files

Have you still got your Windows machine running CD?

1. Open the files in Corel Draw.
2. EXPORT them into a standard format (like EPS or better yet AI)
3. Burn the exported files to disc or thumb drive or whatever.

On your Mac:

1. Buy Adobe Illustrator to open EPS files. You can preview EPS file in Preview but that's about all, you'll need a vector drawing program of some kind in order to work with your vector (formerly Corel Draw) files.

As I mentioned, you'll need a program like Adobe Illustrator to work with vector PDF or EPS files.
