Hi I've had boot camp for about a year now and I would like to share some files between both OS's especially music files. It is so boring not having my music while I am working on the XP side. The XP partition is set up as a FAT 32, tiger can see it but XP can't see tiger. After looking around, can gparted work? Can I make a small "shareable" partition the both OS's can see and modify? I know that there are other software that can do this but I do not want to pay for something that I can do the same job of a free alternative.

Thanks

Man that would have been a scary feeling in the gut! Anyways what if when I created the shared partition, I create it after the XP. Remember that the XP partition moved from 3 to 4, say 5 or something. I wonder if that will work...

Grab yourself a copy of Mediafour MacDrive 7.10

I believe its 30$, or it can be free if you have the resources ;D

Works like a charm for me, I've been using it since my second week using bootcamp a year ago, lol.

Well I found HFS Explorer and it works pretty good, and it is free!
