    Retrieving data from pc ex-hard drive to mac
    I want to retrieve some data from an external pc based hard drive.
    Is there an application built in my new power book that will do this?

    Or do I need to get the virtual pc software to run the drivers that came with the external hard drive.( it is a buslink usb2.0)
    thanks.

    I think you should be able to plug it right in via USB2.0, but ask around for confirmation.

    Yea thats what i want to know. What application does the deed?
    My powerbook recognizes the buslink drive but asks for an application.
    I have a bunch of music stored in the buslink that was running in windoz xp media player. I'd love to retrieve that music to the itunes.

    Shouldnt need any applications should just mount onto the desktop

    Once its mounted just go into iTunes go to import
