Windows 7: Recovering data from broken MyBookWorld

Recovering data from broken MyBookWorld

I've had a successful setup with a MyBookWorld 500Gb blue ring NAS which has just been dropped by one my kids. I couldn't get it working so have now resorted to removing the hard drive from the enclosure. This seems ok and in a drive dock gives my pc access to the basics in Windows disc management, however it is not visible in Windows Explorer, which is to be expected as it uses a Linux file format. Does anyone have any suggestions for a program which will give me access to the files themselves so I can move them back onto a disc in my Windows 7 64bit pc?
Many thanks! Mark

It may be of good use to use a linux OS to copy the data to your C:\ drive - Use Ubuntu Live CD to Backup Files from Your Dead Windows Computer

I understand your machine isn't dead but it shows how you can access a drive using Linux without the need to install it

Hope This Helps,
