There is no USB support under Windows 95 unless you have OSR/2, and even then USB support is patchy at the best of times.
How big is the hard drive for the Windows 95 machine? If its bigger than 4Gb XP may not be able to read it.
A better solution if the Win95 PC is network enabled and capable is to connect it up to a router, connect your computer to the same router and then browse the files that way. issues over filesystems then become irrelevant.

Put the W95 drive in as a slave to the XP box
Transfer the files to an appropriate folder on the XP drive
Next..to READ the copied files you will need the APPLICATION loaded on the XP box first
IF the files are visible on the XP drive the all you should need is the application correctly installed on the XP box
Most XP installs use the NTFS file system and this is unreadable by W95...if you can see the drive connected to a W95 system then you must have FAT32 file system

If you are using USB converters for hard drives then the variables have increased so far even a guess is out of the question
A FULL chronological explanation of the EXACT details may get you some usefull results
