    Access Mac Files Through XP On Bootcamp?
    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)

    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.
