I use MacLink Plus from DataViz. It is a file transfer and
translation utility that provides file conversions between Mac and PC files
as well as between different Mac files. You can order it thru Mac Warehouse
(800-255-6227). They have several versions, depending on your needs. Or you
can call DataViz, the owners, (203-268-0030).
