I read somewhere that you need MacDrive 6.1 - something to do with the newer version having support for MPT partition tables.

You formatted the Mac OS X partition as FAT32? That's not a good idea.

I am pretty sure what he meant is that the windows partition is Fat32 and not NTFS. Mac Drive is a program so that you can see HFS+ Drives(Macintosh Formatted drives) in windows without it you wouldn't be able too see your macintosh partition. But to get back to the subject at hand yes i was able to use MacDrive to see my partition and use all the stuff it is pretty cool.
