    You can save it on a flash drive. Then when you boot into Windows, pull it off the flash drive.

    Edit: Now that I re-read your post, I think you might be asking if you can access your Mac OS X partition when you're in Windows. If so, I have no idea... I don't use Bootcamp.

    A CD? A flash drive? Or you could install MacFUSE and NTFS-3G in OS X so that you can write directly to your Windows partition and make it drag and drop.

    MacDrive will do the same, but for the Windows side.

    Except MacFUSE/NTFS-3g is free and MacDrive costs.

    Actually, I have had issues (well, one issue) with the latest version of MacFUSE. I was copying a large file, a 3.5GB ISO of Fedora 10, from an NTFS formatted drive to my iMac, and it crapped out right at 2GB.

    I have MacFUSE/NTFS-3g on my iMac, but my wife's MacBook doesn't. I was able to copy the ISO onto her Mac (Macs can read NTFS). So it wasn't that the file was corrupted.

    Yes, both MacFUSE and NTFS-3g are completely up-to-date.

    Anyway, just a warning that it mightn't work smoothly.
