    Ok so I have my mac partitioned using bootcamp and have mac and Windows 7 on it. On my mac I have my music and its great. Now when I boot into Windows I do not have my music with me. Is there a way to listen to my music but not duplicate my music folder on my mac? Thanks

    I usually just browse my library manually using the HFS+ read only driver and play songs/albums in Windows Media Player.

    There are other ways of making it work, but they require write access to the iTunes library folder and depending on the size of your library, switching OSes can take a while.

    Search for some threads where I helped Maxi89 through this if you are interested.

    With the way you explained will I have issues with the DRM music I have?

    Yes. But you could just play those in QuickTime for Windows. You'd use up one of your iTunes account activations though.
