Default Need to transfer from Mac drive to PC

I have several Pro Tools projects and files that are on a Macintosh formatted hard drive. Which software can I purchase to be able to transfer the Pro Tools complete projects and wav files over to my PC? I am hoping there will be no difference in the Pro Tools projects between MacIntosh and PC as well. I currently use Pro Tools 2018.7 for my PC, but I have no idea which version of Pro Tools is on the mac Drive. Thanks

Thanks I have heard of that software before. Apparently the transfer was done using Pro Tools versions 7 and 10. I'm hoping that my Pro Tools 2018 .7 will open the projects just fine and convert them into my PC.

thanks! Have you tried others? I also see MacDrive Standard 50 bucks compared to paragon 20. I did notice that you can read a cd or dvd from a Mac with MacDrive. could you do the same with Paragon? is one any better, faster or easier?
thanks1

Default Re: Need to transfer from Mac drive to PC

I've had both and while I prefer MacDrive, it was not available for Windows 10 when I last needed it. That forced me to get Paragon, which is a lot less money, but slightly less convenient(sessions work best if I copy/move them OFF the mac hard drive and onto my recording drive). You should have no trouble opening the older session but for 2 caveats:
#1-if they were save in SD II file format, you need to open on a Mac running PT10(or 11, not sure) and older so you can convert to wave format.
#2-some plugins are going to need to be replaced with newer AAX versions(not everything made the jump, unchanged).

Use a drive formated as ExFAT. Readable and writable by both Windows and Mac OS.
