Ok, so I dual boot with boot camp. I don't have macdrive and I was wanting to transfer something from osx to windows. I thought well, I will just grab my usb pendrive- copy, reboot and paste. It occurred to me why this is possible. -The penddrive is formatted using FAT32, a filesystem both os's can read and write, now installing XP to a FAT32 is a joke, but has anyone thought of making a third partition. We make a third partition the size of a gig, give or take to personal preference. The filesystem of that 3rd partition will be FAT32, that way both os's can read and write to it. So if you want to transfer things, you just copy or move the file to that FAT32 drive, reboot and do what you want with it. Brilliant right!?
