I feel like this is something simple but I'm not sure of the best solution.

A portable 500gb drive has several ProRes HD files on it that were transferred via a PC laptop from a KiPro, and directly onto the drive. We want to load the files on it into a Final Cut system which is on an Apple G5. Anyone have experience doing this?

If the drive is NTFS the Mac should be able to read it, but not write. Just copy the files onto your G5's media drive and then import them to FCP.
