Transfer My Book Mac files to PC

I have a My Book for Mac that I had been using to back up files on my old macbook. The problem is my macbook has pretty much died. It can no longer be updated and freezes just after start up.

I have a Windows laptop. I want to know if it is possible to gain access to the back up files. I am particularly interested in the itunes library.



It would depend on the current file system of your unit. Out of the box, the WD My Book for Mac comes HFS+, which is a Mac-optimized file system that is incompatible with Windows. On the other hand, if your hard drive had been formatted to FAT32 at some point you would only need to connect your unit.

If not, you will need an application able to grant access to Mac-formatted hard drives in Windows.
