MacDrive Bridges Apple “Boot Camp” Gap


West Des Moines, IA (April 6, 2006) — Now that Intel-based Macintosh computers can run Windows XP, users are turning to Mediafour’s MacDrive software to access files on Mac disks directly from Windows.

Apple’s Boot Camp software makes Windows XP work on all Intel-based Macintosh computers, but users are frustrated that they can’t access their Mac files from Windows applications.

For these users, Mediafour’s MacDrive software is the answer, providing seamless access to files on all Mac disks. No special steps are required—with MacDrive installed, Mac disks automatically appear and act like standard Windows disks.

“Running Windows XP on the Mac is fantastic,” said Brian Landwehr, president of Mediafour. “But the lack of access to files on Mac disks is a big problem. MacDrive is a must-have for anyone running Windows XP on their Mac.”

With MacDrive installed on an Intel-based Mac, Windows XP users can not only seamlessly read and write files on the computer’s OS X boot partition, but also files on all HFS and HFS+ disks, including external USB and FireWire drives. MacDrive also burns Mac CDs and DVDs.
