    I'm using Parallels 3 on Boot Camp and I cannot connect my external HFS+ hard drive (as well with USB as with Firewire). When I go into the device menu and connect it with usb, it is harshly disconnected from mac os but it seems fine: windows tells me my new device is ready to use but I can't see it anywhere... I have MacDrive installed on Windows and it works when i'm under boot camp... Is there something to do or it just won't work?

    Go into "My Computer" on the Windows side. Do you see it there?

    Im not sure exactly what you are saying here... but when you say it disconnects harshly from Mac.... are you trying to read and see an HFS drive in windows? You cant mount it. Windows doesn't know what it is. You can only use networking to see it.
