    hi there, I use parallels but I want test bootcamp for games etc... but I have question... I can by example have shared folders like parallels, by example I like use mac the ripper for extract some movies... in a shared folder and later go to windows and use DVD Shrink for compress... or well see on mac os x files of windows like Parallels Explorer feature... but I dont know if with bootcamp I can do that.

    Boot Camp cannot read the Mac partition without a third-party program that allows you to read the HFS+ file system OS X uses.

    There are free ones (the name escapes me, but Google will bring it up) as well as payware like MacDrive.

    Exactly. I recommend Paragon NTFS, which will allow you to write to your Windows partition on your Mac, and MacDrive. which will allow you to read files from your Mac on your Windows partition.

    A free alternative to paragon is MacFuse & NTFS-3G
