The MAC is not recognizing HDD because it may not be in FAT or MAC OS X Journeled Format.
Please Follow below steps to Reformat the HDD to make it Compatible with MAC.

2. Open Disk Utility from Applications -> Utilities

If you have a hard-drive that is formatted as NTFS which stands for (New Technology File Ssytem), Mac OS X can only read the partition. It cannot write to it.
The trick is to use your drive manfacturer's disk-formatting software which will allow you to format your drive as one large partition. Formatting your drive as one large FAT 32 partition is the easiest way to make a drive so it can be used with both PC's and Mac's.
Another option is to use a third part utility so that you can read a MAC formated harddrive's from your PC. Here is one option: http://www.macdrive.com/.

The simple answer to your question is yes. The trick is getting the external floppy drive.
If you have one you should be able to connect it to you mac and simply drag the files on to your desktop. Depending what the files are you should then be able to still read them and save them on the mac in a new format.
It really depends on what format the files are and what app they where created in.
Floppy disks! I have not come across them for years! The process is quite slow!

SOURCE: LaCie 1 TB Hard drive won't boot
I lave lots and lots of experience with LaCie Drives (I have 6 of the 2TB models). Every, every, every time a drive fails or runs slowly, it is the power supply. I have now replaced 5. They run very hot (so does the drive), and fail pretty often. It looks like the voltage drops just a smidge, and access times seem to increase, i.e., the drive "runs slow". Then it won't boot at all, and the blue light keeps blinking. Fortunately LaCie has replacement power supplies in the store. Buy a couple extra. I am married to the LaCie drives now, or I would probably switch brands. I kind of guess that they know about this because I contacted the help desk, and he wasn't surprised. Maxtor has a nice drive, and the Calvary drive is $150 cheaper. A drive is a drive I guess. By the way, if anyone is listening, how about building a QUIET, COOL drive with and INTERNAL POWER SUPPLY? GOT IT? All the cords and power supply bricks make me crazy. It might be nice to see a stackable drive where the top of one drive mates to the bottom of another, carrying network info as well as power to the drive above. Hint, hint. We all are building systems with ungodly amounts of storage. Too bad the manufacturers aren't building drives with the durability we need.

Fixed- I purchased one of the following esata cards with the JMB360 chipset and it worked in my brand new Macbook pro 17" right out of the box. My other eSata from SIIG, inc would not mount any drives or accept any drivers. So the silicon based eSata's must have some type of hardware conflict with Macbooks. (P.S. I purchased the one from Best Connectivity for $20). These cards all use the JMB360 Chipset:
