Moving from Mac to Windows. Need help moving data pls

As the title states, I'm switching back from Mac to PC. The new Windows runs Windows 8. I have all of my precious photos (I love photography in particular) and music stored on an external hard drive (iomega), but it's been formatted for Mac OS. I read that you can't transfer from a Mac OS formatted drive to a PC.

Telling me to reformat the ext. hdd to fat32 isn't going to help, because first of all, that would delete the valuable data, and fat32 only allows the transfer of files less than 4GB.

Please tell me how I can transfer all of my data on my Mac OS X-formatted external drive to my new Windows PC. It is absolutely essential, and I would greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance.
