I have an old CD with hundreds of files backed up off an older imac some years ago. I had been planning just to plant the whole thing in a directory on my pc, but have discovered that probably 1 in 20 files have " in the file names, so I can't copy/open do anything to them. Is anyone aware of any way of getting around this, preferably without having to do it manually. Is there some sort of copy utility? or any other suggestions (other than spending hours on mac renaming the files)

You could try and see if the files will copy using this program : http://www.runtime.org/captain-nemo.htm

Thanks for that. I've done a bit more exploring and discovered a commercial package called MacDrive

And a read only GPL program called HFSExplorer
This certainly seems to be OK so far, at least for viewing the files. I guess I'll see how it is with copying.
