Data recovery Help!

Forums: 

A friend of mine has a "MyBook" portable HDD full of valuable photos, and other stuff.

He lent it to a friend of his and when he got it back he was not able to open it on his windows PC so he asked me for help.

When I got my hands the HDD, the first thing I did was to connect it to my Ubuntu machine.

To my surprise the HDD was readable. The thing is that the disk had 133MB worth of Time machine configuration files for a MacBook pro.

So, i'm thinking that this friend formatted the drive accidentally to HFS. :(

Is there any chance of recovering the info? Any idea on what program I should Use?
