    Ive just installed Windows 7 via Bootcamp on a MacBook. When I go into 'Computer' in Windows, I can see my Macintosh HD drive and most of its contents, some pics and other folders etc are all viewable and draggable into Windows. What im thinking now is, can I setup iTunes or even Media Player to see my iTunes library on the Mac side without actually copying it to Windows?

    Ive been searching for the Library whilst in Windows but cant find it.

    Any help would be great, Thanks.

    Shameless bump I know, but I'd really love to know.

    Yes, you can. :) I'm listening to music that's on my OSX drive right now. When you install iTunes tell it to manually manage files, go to "add folder to Library" then add the full iTunes folder from OSX (users/yourname/music). It didn't copy songs or movies on Windows, only the iPhone app ipa's for some reason.

    The only question is whether I'll have to add new files manually from now on or if it can do so automatically - will have to test later. I'm also curious as to whether I can sync my iPhone as if I were in OSX.
