Default FIle Recovery for Mac

I have two hard drives; 30 gb each. I have a PC and i use Mac. The problem is I tired to connect my external drives to my Mac and it says it cant be shown and the drive in not formatted. I am pretty sure it is formatted and maybe into FAT32. How to recover my files from those hard drives?

I think there is a simple solution, you can take your hard drive to your friend's house and connect, make sure he has FAT32 formatted to his main hard drive. The files are not showing to your Mac because the file format system is not matching with your external hard drive. If your Mac is NTFS formatted then you can view the FAT formatted drives. Also you can use GetDataBack. Remember to use FAT32 version.

I'm not acquainted with how most file restoration software functions, but I know one of things they try to avoid is overwriting user information. As a point in fact the common caution from most data recovery software marketers is to cease using the drive for worry of doing just that.
