    I have a Snow Leopard and Windows 7 partition. On my Windows 7 partition, I'd like to be able to stream music that I have stored on the OSX one. Is there any way to do this? I'm able to access the files using programs like HFXExplorer, and I'm able to copy music to the Windows partition when I'm on the OSX one, but when I try accessing the OSX partition from the Windows 7 partition, I'm met with empty folders.

    Copying all the music is out of the question as there is a great deal of it, for which I just don't have the space for doubles. Is there anyway to simply stream the music from the OSX partition in a music client; winamp specifically?

    Are you running the latest drivers offered by Apple Software Update?

    There was a problem with .Xauthority files that sounds similar to what you are experiencing, but I thought that was fixed in an update.

    Oh wow, I thought I had updated to 3.1 when I reinstalled but I guess that was before. Works perfectly now! Thank you!
