    I bought my Macbook on the 24th of January and I finally decided to install Boot Camp since there's no Activesync available for my Windows phone.
    Now, my question is: Is there any way to view pictures,mp3s from mac os while I'm on XP and vice versa?
    I would hate to have to download my music library on XP as well just to update my phone's music library.

    For the missing Active Synch use Missing Synch

    It's really, really good and integrates with iCal or Entourage.
    Then you won't have to boot into Windows with Bootcamp ..

    And to answer your question you can use a program called "Macdrive" to read your Mac files while in PC mode. Or copy them onto an external hard drive.

    Is there a program to view my XP files while in MAC? Or does Macdrive handle both directions?

    MacDrive is Windows software so it will only work under Windows.

    Mac OS X will natively read NTFS file systems but cannot write to them. It will, however, read and write to FAT32 file systems.
