    Hi Fellow MacPro users,

    Does anyone know if this can be setup. With the 320GB HD on the new MP I know I can install Bootcamp on a partition size that I choose (I am thinking around 70-80GB for software and scratch). Now I am going to be adding an extra 500 GB HD drive to the second sled. If this is a Mac OSX formatted drive will my Windows XP partition under Bootcamp be able to see this extra 500GB and will it be able to read and write to it?

    If this does not work is there any way to get some more storage for my work (mostly 3D Studio Max) under Windows XP?

    Thank you for your help. :)

    If it is HFS+ formatted Windows will not be able to see the drive.

    There are applications that enable Windows to see it though, like Mediafour's Macdrive and others.
