  1. Maybe it was covered in these forums or online somewhere but I'm having bad luck finding it.
    I was just wondering if, from XP on my MacBook, its possible to see the rest of the Macintosh HD? All I can see in "My Computer" is drive C:

    Thanks!

    As far as I am aware, no you would not be able to because the Apple portion of the hard-disk is formatted using the HFS+ file system which XP does not understand. There are third-party tools (eg MacDrive) which will allow you to do this although you will probably have trouble finding a free one.
