    This isn't realy about windows on a mac, its about windows with mac.

    I have a PC, and a macbook. I also have an external harddrive, formatted for mac. What I would like to do is plug the external hard drive into the PC, and share it over the network so that I can access it wirelessly from my macbook. The problem is that windows does not recognise the drive, so I cannot share it. Any mac-drive-formatted reading programs only read the drive from within the program, so I still can't share it.

    Does anyone know I way I could set this up, or if it's possible?

    Macdrive should do what you need - there's a trial version available.

    Thanks guys, I'll think about it. A bit pricey for what I want it for ...
