    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if there was still a conflict with the new beta/bootcamp with macdrive...

    ... with the original beta release, i couldn't have macdrive installed and running on my bootcamp partition, and still access the bootcamp partition with parallels.

    it would be ideal if i could have both running without conflict, did parallels bother to address this with their most recent build of 3170?

    I have a bootcamp partition which I run both from bootcamp , and from Parallels.

    I was thinking about installing Macdrive to be able to access my mac drives while running in bootcamp.

    But will running Parallels and Macdrive togeather work?

    (i know I can use shared folders while running Parallels, just wondering if there is any harm having macdrive installed and only use it in bootcamp)

    It works fine. I'm running Parallels 3070 + WinXP in Boot Camp + Macdrive. Parallels disables Macdrive when you run XP in the VM. You may need to reenable it when you boot via Boot Camp, but it works fine.
