    I have Parallels 7 running XP. In Windows explorer, the Mac is mapped to the Y: drive.

    I'd like to copy (from DOS in XP) .jpgs into iPhoto. I don't know how to do this. I can do:
    copy foo.jpg y:\desktop\foo.jpg

    but of course that only puts foo.jpg on the Mac Desktop. Can I use a DOS copy command within XP to do a copy that will place the photo into iPhoto?

    Yes, I know that. That's what I've been doing. But now I want to do it under the control of a script, so I need to know how to do the relevant copy command.

    You need to understand that Parallels mounts 2 drives - you local User folder and root Mac OS folder - under different drive letters
