    I would think this is a simpe fix somewhere, but I'm not sure where. When I'm booted into OS X, I can see the Windows partition and access files from it. However, I can't see the OS X partition (as another drive) when booted into Windows. Why is this?

    Because, it is windows.

    Macs filesystem is unix. there are no drive letters like in windows. someone else can probably explain it alot better than I can.

    OS X can read/write FAT32 windows partitions and can read (but not write) NTFS. Windows has no native support for HFS+ or UFS, but there are paid utilities you can get to access the mac drive for windows. the question is, why would you want to let windows touch your mac partition at all :p
