    Hi
    Sorry if this Question is repeated.

    I have MacBookPro Unibody 2.53 ghz 15" 4GB and 320 GB

    -Partitioned it with bootcamp assistant to Mac(220gb) and Windows(100gb)
    -loaded Windows vista on bootcamp partition
    -Installed VMWare fusion to use windows vista from bootcamp partition
    -All my docs pics are in mac partition
    -With vmware i can access files from windows and mac but when i need to boot directly into windows i should be able to use the docs and pics from the mac partition directly.. (eg i am using picasa to arrange my pics i should be able to get the pics folder mapped in windows somehow....)

    Used hfsexplorer didnt work for me

    Please help me

    Thanks

    There is a bit of software called MacDrive that lets you do exactly that.

    Here's the link.

    No, but the MacDrive program linked above will enable you to access your Mac drive while using Bootcamp. You install it and it acts as a driver for the Mac file system. Then you'll be able to access your files on the Mac drive.
