Acute Systems announced version 6.1 of its software which allows Windows users to read files from Mac format discs without having to buy an Apple Macintosh.
The application serves as a bridge between Mac and Windows file systems, mapping known extensions and file types between platforms.
With TransMac it is possible to access files from CD, floppy, hard drives and removable drives that have Mac format volumes (both standard HFS and HFS+ are supported).
TransMac is intended for a broad range of computer users who have to deal with files from both Mac and PC platforms and can be used for publishing, business, graphics design, digital photography, web, music, video and more.
The built-in file browser offers tools for searching data and viewing files right from the TransMac application. Besides providing access to Mac volumes, TransMac can create a file based image of a Mac volume which can then be written to a CD using an external CD recording application, which means Windows users get a chance to create Mac discs on Windows system.
