Retrieving Files on Fat32 External HD

Does anyone know how to retrieve files from a Fat32 formatted external hard drive. I need to transfer them to a Window 7 NTFS pc.

Further progress; I've copied a 117min programme and successfully converted to DVD using DVD Flick, & successfully burned it to disc.

One interesting problem I had was with the video aspect ratio, I needed 16:9 and without altering any settings, I got 4:3. When I eventually discovered how to get to the ratio setting, I set it to 16:9 but still got 4:3. It wasn't till I found the video source setting to set the pixel ratio to 16:9 that I got the right result.

Anyway, you're right, if I were a drinker I'd break open the champagne - but I wouldn't have succeeded without your help, so many thanks once again.

If you find out how to deal with the sequence of episodes problem I'm experiencing I'd really like to know.

Anyway, thanks again - I owe you
