Windows 7: accessing additional hard drives

accessing additional hard drives

I installed XP mode to be able to run Office 2003 and 2007 simultaniously, mainly because of microsoft access 2003, which my clients use. I would like to work in Office 2007, but it crashes my access 2003 databases. I installed office 2003 in XP mode and office 2007 in Win 7.

In my clients network environment, the program part of access usually sits on the C drive and the data (accessible by all users) sits on a mapped network drive, which happens to be the F drive.

On my computer all my data sits on a second harddrive (only programs are on C), which I assigned the drive letter F, which simulated the network drive.

To be able to use and develop access efficiently, I need to be able to access the existing 2nd harddrive or another drive in XP mode.

Is it possible?

I got the drive to work now.
I was able to figure out that the harddrive was already mapped. After deleting the existing drive mapping I was able to map it the way I needed to have it.
