    I have Vista 64 bit installed with Bootcamp and running under VMware... I have a External hard drive that I keep all my NTFS files on and I'm able to access the drive with Vista while using VMware, but it always says the files are read only... I can open a file in AutoCAD as read only and then save it back out to the External HD and it acts normally, but I don't understand why it is coming up as read only originally... I've checked all the file attributes and everything. Any suggestions..?? Thank you everyone...
