How can I incorporate or convert Mac data on a PC?

I no longer have a Mac computer, but I have 25GB of Mac data that I would like to incorporate onto my PC. Is there a software program that will read the Mac data on my PC, so that I can then read or view the data?

    Are those 25GB of data in a Mac specific file type or just on a Mac formatted (HFS+) Drive/Partition ~ in the second case here are some options.

    There is a free software called HFS Explorerhttp://www.catacombae.org/hfsx.html

    The only other options I know are commercial file system drivers

    There is also a HFS driver within the Boot Camp installation package ~ it might be available for non-Boot-Camp Windows installations but I'm not sure if those "hacked" versions are very reliable.

      I second HFS explorer, it's always been a reliable option for me even if it does take a while and the interface is a little lame.
