first off a bit of info. i use a MacBook Pro as my main computer now but when i had a windows laptop i had my games installed on a Firewire/USB external hard drive to save space. when i got my Mac i made an HFS+ (native for Mac OS X) partition and kept the NTFS partition. i then installed windows on the Mac purely for playing games on the external hard drive.
first off i installed Vista and the NTFS disk showed up fine but Vista seemed to crash my games even though i had nothing else installed and the internet was not connected. i tried using a friends PC which had XP installed and the games played fine.
so i decided to install XP on my boot camp partition. now my NTFS disk does not show up in My Computer. ive tried using Firewire and USB but no luck. however in disk management the NTFS partition shows up and so does the HFS+ partition (labelled as unknown) but the NTFS partition is labelled as "Unallocated".
how do i make the NTFS disk show up? i dont want to format the whole external drive as i have some very important files on the HFS+ side.
thanks for reading and i look forward to your replies.
