    So I installed XP SP3 on my MacBook Pro 13" 2.53GHz. Installed the drivers. Done a reboot. And theres the 2ND!! Drive. Called macintosh hd. Opened it and woola. the macintosh hd contents were there. Tehehe. I'm able to read but not write. But thats ok. Setting up file sharing in xp sucks to go from 1 computer to another. But for 2 macs connecting it's easy so once it's on my macintosh hd. I can just find the file in the macintosh hd drive in windows! I never was able to access the macintosh hd hard drive with windows on my older macbook pro 17" Early 2008:eek:

    Ooh. I have an older MBP and can't access it either. I got the girlfriend a new MBP 13inch last summer though, I'll have a poke around on her XP and see what the score is tomorrow.
