You could also start by turning on "Windows Sharing" in the System Preferences "Sharing" panel.

It depends on what you are doing? If you are using bootcamp, either of the previously mentioned software apps will do the trick.

If you are using Parallels the Mac and Windows drives are available to each other starting with version 3 you can drag and drop as needed.

Cheers,

MacDrive is the way to go. It works perfectly with my external HD and allows me to use it to back up data on both Windows and OSX.

I had the opposite problem. I wanted to STOP Windows from reading (or even mounting) the OS X partition as D:. I found this solution on the Internet. Rename AppleMNT.sys in the System32 folder (in \Windows) to have a different extension, like .sav e.g..

This worked like a charm for me, so maybe you need to look for, or somehow acquire if you don't have it, the AppleMNT file and put it in the System32 folder.
