MacDrive 7 – making Macs and PC’s friends again
As an Adobe guy who runs around the country with laptops, drives, etc. and needs to be prepared to demo Mac or PC at a moment’s notice, having access to hard drives regardless of their format or OS preference is paramount.
So, with the idea of passing on some of what I encounter and use, I’d like to mention that I use Media Four’s MacDrive 7 nearly every day. It allows me to access my Mac volumes when I’m running in PC mode. Specifcally, I use it when I’ve used Apple’s bootcamp to turn my Mac into a PC.
It works just as it’s supposed to which is why I like it so much. It just works…obvious but important nonetheless. Now if only we could get Apple to have OS X recognize NTFS drives and I would be all set…sigh…
While we’re on the subject of bootcamp, I tip my hat to fellow Adobe person Colin Smith for pointing out that ATI has published Mac drivers for bootcamp users. Finally, I can control my screen settings and a projector at the same time!!!!
