    Hey guys,

    Since MacDrive 7 does not appear to work yet with Vista-64, can anyone tell me how to create a FAT32 partition so that I can use it as an internal file transfer disk between Vista-64 and Leopard?

    Thanks very much for any help,

    I don't. I use offline files to share the most important files between the 2 OSes. I use VMWare Fusion the majority of the time, so it syncs up, reboot back into vista, I'd have my files there.

    Thanks ayeying, but I am not interested in any type of VM software as I do 3D and any hit at all to speed is not acceptable. Plus, I am sure LightWave (one of my 3D apps) with its dongle tied differently to Mac and Win would get way confused with the two OSs running.

    I just want a way to transfer files back and forth between my drives, not run OSs simultaneously.

    Thanks for the suggestion though. :)
