    hello

    I installed Windows 7 with my snow leopard bootcamp on my MBP yesterday and all seems to be running fine and dandy except when Im in windows, I plug in my external hard drive which is formatted to a mac and it makes the noise to show its been plugged in but nothing shows up. I have installed MacDrive on there so I can read HFS formatted disks but the drive just doesnt appear anywhere.

    I have plugged the same drive into my dell laptop with windows 7 and it appears on there so its not the drive (plus it shows up fine on the mac under SL anyway)

    Any ideas? Im a bit baffled! :confused:

    I've just found out I'm having this same problem. My Mac partition shows up just fine, but my external firewire HDD (which is also formatted HFS+) is not showing up. I even tried using the Legacy firewire driver, and while I did get the "device connected" sound, it still doesn't show up under Computer.
