Hello. I've got a Zune, so when I get an iMac (soon), I'll have to install XP through Bootcamp, as there is no Zune software out for mac. However, I want to keep all of my Music on the Mac partition, as I want an iTunes libary, as I may get an iPod touch soon.

So, is this possible? Can the Zune software read the files from my Mac Partition? All I want it to do is read the files, it doesn't need to write any. Thanks.

(If it can't, I'll just have to have my music on both partitions)
QUOTE Thanks

There's a product called MacDrive for Windows that can read/write Mac partitions. I'd imagine you could do that it that way. Or, you could always use Parallels Desktop for running Windows instead of Boot Camp as Parallels opens a bridge between the two filesystems while Windows is running.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
