How do I transfer my Tree Maker files from my PC to my iMac.

Family Tree Maker has a Mac version of their software available on their website.
This link also provides some possible solutions for your situation for converting PC version to Mac.

If you have any reason to not switch to the Mac version of Family Tree Maker, or have other PC software that may not not be available for Mac, there is an easy solution for this as well, but does require purchasing a copy of Windows. You can install Windows as a second operating system on your Mac to support those applications not compatible with Mac. This can be done using the built in "Bootcamp" utility on your Mac. This allows you to boot to any version of Windows or Linux, as well as your Mac OS. Another method is to install "Parallels" for Mac, which also allows you to install multiple operatings systems, but with the added ability to Mac OS X and Windows simultaneously.

Hallo, I have a LaCie Grand 1 TP external harddrive. I cant work in mine hard drive. I cant throw anything away i cant rename documents or put new ones on it. Some background info A few months...

you may face this issue because of differences between mac and windows file systems/partition table and security attributes that may disallow any further changes.

1-try to connect you HDD to a windows Computer and Backup all your files before loses any data(use more newer version of windows like windows 10 build 1709 windows XP is old/out of services and has many problems)
2-after a full backup in windows try to connect your HDD to your mac and format it via your MacBook
3- after formatting your HDD try to reconnect your HDD to windows and copy your files to HDD(windows has a compatible file systems that could read/allow/write mac file systems/partition and its attributes)

IMac won't recognize the files on a PC

In order for a Mac to open files generated on a PC, you must have a program capable of reading these files. The new version of Microsoft Office defaults to saving files in a new format which is not compatible with earlier versions. This can be rectified by 'Back Saving' files to an earlier version of Office in the 'Save' menu.
If you have files that you know can be opened with an application that is installed on the Mac, ctrl/click (right click) on the file and chose 'Open With' from the drop down menu. This will allow you to choose the application.
