Apologies if this question has been answered before, but I was wondering how if theres a way to access the Mac drive whilst i'm in Windows. I have a MBP and just installed Windows, so basically I want to be able to play my music which is on the Mac side whilst in Windows. Also, is there a way to do it vise versa as well? It would make transferring files a lot easier,

Thanks

Unfortunately I don't think you can, as A Windows PC doesn't recognise the format of the Drive, I only think the format that can read and write to for both MAc and PC is FAT32

Is macware also the program that you can run them side by side in the same window? If so, it's definitely worth the $60 some dollars!
