    Question Read & Write permission on windows to access MAC files
    Hi , Few day ago I installed windows 7 on my 2011 macbook pro with bootcamp, There was some Drivers in my MAC installation DVD but the problem is , I want to use 3D studio Max on my windows but i don't have the permission to WRITE on the mac drives but still i can read from Mac drives, IS there any way to get the permission from the OS X to write on mac drives in windows ?

    i really prefer to find a way to solve it in mac i don't really like to install any other softwares to get this permission,...

    Can anyone help me with this issue?

    I'm not too sure what you mean by this... you should be able to boot into windows 7 and install the software.
    When you install Windows via Bootcamp it splits the HDD in 2, Windows on one "Partition" and OSX on the other.
    When you install something onto OSX it will not affect the Windows side and vice-versa.

    Hope this helps

    Wikipedia on HFS+ & Windows.

    There are a few commercial products that allow Windows users to read and write to HFS Plus formatted media, but to date Apple has only released read-only HFS+ drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 as part of the Boot Camp software in Mac OS X 10.6. This means users on these systems can read data on the HFS+ drive, but not write to them. Microsoft has created an HFS+ driver for the Xbox 360 mainly for the purpose of reading HFS+ formatted iPods.

    You might want to take a look at Parallels for the Mac.

    I personally like Paragon software for this. They have NTFS for OS X and HFS+ for Windows. you can get them both bundled and save some cash also. one will allow you to write to NTFS from the Mac side and the other will allow you to write to your Mac side from windows - link - link - they both have a free trial.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
