HFS+ For Windows 9.0 cannot read Mac ext HDD I own PC based laptop with Windows Vista OS. A few days ago I installed the trial version of HFS+ For Windows 9.0 to be able to read an external hard disc drive formatted for Mac OS. At first it worked great. I was able to transfer files into the ext HDD. But when I shut down my laptop, I can no longer read the Mac ext hdd after boot up. I see the drive letter in "My Computer", but when I try to access it, I get a message, "You need to format the disc drive G: before you can use it. Do you want to format it?" Note, I assigned it a G drive during one of my troubleshooting steps. Also, when I right click and view "Properties", the used space and free space are both at 0. In the Disk Management window, I see the drive as RAW, Healthy (Primary Partition) with the right drive capacity. Before the problem, the drive can be seen as HFS. I can't figure out why it changed from HFS to RAW after reboot. I decided to purchase the product to get the "Full Version", but this didn't make a difference. Can someone please help me so my pc to recognize the Mac ext hdd without having to reformat? Thanks. I just read a post by Me_E with the same problem. I've contacted Paragon support, and awaiting reply.
