Using Boot Camp 3.0, you are supposed to be able to read files on Mac OS X volumes when booted into Windows. How do you get to see the Mac volumes. Did I miss something?

MacBook 2,1, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Windows 7 via Boot Camp

    you need to install bootcamp drivers in windows. did you do that? boot into windows, insert the SL install dvd, open it and use the program inside to install the bootcamp drivers. this will make drives formatted mac os extended readable from windows.

    Thanks for your reply. I just realized that I installed Boot Camp Software Update 3.1 for Windows 32 bit which requires Windows XP or Vista SP2, but I just bought a new version of Windows 7. The Boot Camp Utility for Windows 7 Upgrade also requires Vista. I guess I have to wait for a Boot Camp version for a new Windows 7. Any idea if this is in the works?

    I don't understand. bootcamp 3.1 IS for windows 7. it should work for you and nothing further should be necessary. I'm really not an expert on windows 7 but see this kb article

    if you have further questions I suggest you ask in the bootcamp forum.

    Thanks again. Problem solved after installing Boot Camp software Update 3.1 for Windows 32 bit and only then the Boot Camp drivers from the SL disk.
