External hard-drive files not recognized

December 7, 2010 at 09:26:41
Specs: Windows 7
After hooking my external hard-drive to a mac, windows now does not see any data on my external hard-drive and wants to format my external hard-drive (which I didn't do). I checked in the computer management function and windows sees the data in a RAW file system. I am presently using test disk to analyse the hard drive (http://www.cgsecurity.org).
Recovery software like Easeus and Pandora Recovery would not recognize the external hard-drive.
What do I do now?

APPLE makes it easy to obtain data from Windows, but Windows does not support doing it the other way around as OSX uses a completely different file format than Windows. Is there something wrong with your MAC, as your external drive is formated to be used with the MAC. The recovery software that you listed are for Windows, not OSX, which is why they do not work.
