    Im running the windows 7 beta on my white macbook (early 2008), I have sorted out my audio issues and now Im getting stuck trying to use programs like macdrive to mount a readable (all i need) external usb hfs drive and internal hfs partition.
    I can read the files within hfs explorer, but i can mount the drive.
    If anyone got this working can you please tell me how

    Turns out Apple has sorted out the problem for us! They are including an HFS driver for windows in Snow Leopard for use with boot camp.

    Also I just found this today

    There's a free beta version of MacDrive 8 that supports Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) so we can get going today rather than having to wait for snow leopard

    I've found MacDrive is great in XP boot camp. I didn't know that you could do W7 in Boot Camp though. Does it require the RC version?
