I'd recommend Paragon's NTFS for Mac® OS X 8.0

NTFS for mac will let you access an NTFS partition from your Mac OSx. I would also recommend Mediefour MacDrive to access HFS partitions from Windows. This will allow you to share files back and fourth.

On the install part you need to use Bootcamp to install Windows and then install the applications as per their instructions.

NTFS for Mac also provides the software for accessing HFS from Windows. It's a two in one package.

Actually it looks like they are getting ready to start to charge for it. I can't find the free version for Mac any longer. If you have a link that would be great.

I noticed that. I see they're now calling it a "commercial driver". It does look like the Apple download is still the free version though. Give it a try.

Personally, I prefer Paragon NTFS 8.0 as it works both ways. I bought it when it was packaged with several other Paragon utilities - $19.95. It's now at that price stand alone.

Regards.
