Try mounting the drive in linux, it should be able to deal with it. In fact it should just mount automatically. If not, try this:

mkdir test

sudo mount -f hfsplus /dev/sdb1 test

Replace /dev/sdb1 with whatever letter your usb drive has been assigned to. If you don't know it, jusr run dmesg |tail after plugging the drive in and look for something like:

[22361.446665] sd 6:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
[22361.447759]  sdb: sdb1
[22361.450207] sd 6:0:0:0: [sdb] No Caching mode page present
