    I have Parallels 3.0 but do not seem to be able to find any of my external drives on XP even though I have various hard drive management windows software. Need to see external drives as I do not save anything on a computer drive. Any ideas???

    Are the drives showing up in Mac OS X? If they are, then you simply need to connect them to Parallels to use them in Windows. This can be done from the Devices menu.

    I also use Parallels but I can see everything on my network (I use airport extreme) including my external HDs. Are you set up to 'Share' with your Mac?

    I am setup to share with the Mac but just can't see the drives other than the hard drive on the Mac?
