    Ad hoc network between OS X and Windows?

    USB Memory Stick?

    External Hard drive?

    Yeah probably just gonna use my external (although its a My Passport and I first have to figure out how to get it to work in windows) but I was wondering if there was some sort of program to transfer files between drives.

    Do not post piracy-related links in threads.

    Having stated that, how about just navigating to the Mac OS X hard drive in the Windows Explorer and copying the files from there? Since Boot Camp 3, Apple has included HFS+ drivers for Windows, so you can read from (not write to, though) your Mac OS X partition.

    It wasn't a link. ;) The sticky was meant to stop people from posting direct links to keygens, torrents of Windows, etc... This is borderline IMHO.

    Anyhow... @ozreth and anyone else who comes along. TMI. Too much information.

    Because of the forum rules, we will be more likely to be helpful if you don't already tell us up front you are doing something shady. I personally declined to give you the same answer Bengt77 did, because you mentioned what you were trying to transfer up front.

    Not sure but doesn't Windows list your MAC OS partition in My Computer?
