There's nothing you can really do on a PC because Windows cannot read or write a Mac formatted drive without third-party software. If you remove the drive then you can install it in an external enclosure so it can be connected to another Mac.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MBP Unibody; MBP C2D 2.33 Ghz; MBP 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.2), iMac C2D 17"; MB 2.0 Ghz; 80GB iPod Video; iPod Touch; iPod Nano 2GB

As for copying the files i run windows on my Macbook with bootcamp and can access the mac partitions natively (boot camp needs to be installed on windows), you could try installing bootcamp (windows side on the machine). Which is much better then using a third party software.

Use the latest as previous versions didn't have access to Mac partitions
NOTE: I have not tried installing bootcamp (windows) on anything other then on a mac, I am unaware if this violates any licence agreements.Macbook Aluminium (late 2008), Mac OS X (10.6.2), Bootcamp (Windows XP)
