A. Mac Opener 2 by DataViz (http://www.dataviz.com/) allows Macintosh disks to be accessed by NT.
Another option is to ask the Mac user to format a floppy disk as a PC disk. Every MacOS 7.1.2 or above is shipped with "PC Exchange" Control Panel which gives you ability to read, write and format PC disks.
- For System 7.1 and earlier, you can also use Apple File Exchange. This is handy because you also see the hidden files
- The Mac must have a SuperDrive, i.e. be able to read and write 1.4 MB floppies. Early Macs (Mac Plus, many SE's, Mac II, and a few early SE-30's) lacked this feature
- Apple File Exchange works all the way up through MacOS 7.6.1), but conflicts with the PC Exchange Control Panel: Reboot with the Extensions OFF (Shift key down) to use PC Exchange
- Under MacOS 8 and up, the PC Exchange Control Panel has been renamed ";"
- Watch out for FAT12 and FAT16 floppies!
