i dont think there are many macdrive alternatives (if any) so you might be out of luck! (or get osx86)

Hi guys!
I managed to install Macdrive 7 in my Windows 7 build 7000 partition. I just deleted the condition entry on the Msi installer with Orca and it worked.
The problem is that the HSF partitions dont appear in My Computer, Even with the Mac Disk Explorer from Macdrive. I think this is because the volumes are not mounted properly.
I noticed that in The Computer Manager the disks appear but without an assigned letter.
Anybody familiar with this issue?
Thanks!

I have been using HFSExplorer as the above poster sugested and it works fine for extracting data etc. Im sure Macdrive will support windows 7 soon but HFSExplorer serves as a good stop gap in between

hi, yes ive had this problem and yes there is a way around it.
Now i wont take responsability for damage to software caused lol. It works for me. HOWEVER, it wont keep drives on reboot which means if you want to access the drive after reboot then you will have to do this again.

Install using your method mate.
I use paragon partition manager.
Assign drive letter to the mac partition
Go to My Computer, wait a few seconds then click refresh. Et Voila!!

But its not a long term solution, if we could get the drives to auto mount on boot then all would be good. But alias for the moment we cant. However its no biccie to me takes 10 seconds to do it
