    I have Vista 64 bit installed through bootcamp and I'm running Fusion for light tasks... The problem I'm having is that I keep all my files on an external hard drive. Which works when I'm strictly in one of the operating systems at a time, but if I'm running fusion I cannot find the external hard drive to access my windows files. The hard drive will show up on the Mac desktop, but not on the windows... Any help would be appreciated. Thank you...

    have you tried selecting your external hard drive in the menu bar when on fusion. In one of the menus at the top there should be a place where you can virtually connect things from your mac into the virtual machine.

    Try HFS Explorer. It's not perfect, but it works for getting files off your external.

    That or there's MacDrive (i think there's a 64 bit version now). I wish Windows would finally come with HFS support (at least read support like OS X can do with NTFS).
