    I sold my PowerBooks to get the most money for them. Unfortunately Christmas came and my MBP purchase was put on hold. I've been stuck using my work laptop for basic computer use. I miss OS X so bad.

    I have an external drive with some stuff I'd like to access. I've been using my dad's Mac Mini a little, but I'm sick of transferring files over the network. What's the best way to read an HFS+ formatted drive in WinXP?

    I'd like something that's reliable. This drive is almost full of stuff that I do not have backed up. I have months of work on this drive-- I'd freak out if I lose it. Anyone have any issues doing this? Which solution(s) gave you problems?

    mac drive 7 is awesome

    i have my hackintosh drive in the same case as my vista htpc. i dump video files that need conversion onto the hackintosh drive, then reboot into os x and convert with visualhub.
    my hackintosh does not like sata drives and usually only gives me 100mbps on the network instead of gigabit. this is the best solution for me
