I recently got an Xbox360 for gaming, and I was just about to install bootcamp for winxp sp2 when I looked online and saw if I had a version of Media Center I could stream movies and files ect. I was wondering if all this would work with media center installed on a mac and if anyone knows if XP is essentially the same as media center meaning I can run basic apps just the same?

thanks in advance..

Windows Media Centre Edition (MCE) is basically just windows XP home with an extra application called Media Centre. So any application that will work with Windows XP will work with Windows MCE.

You should be able to install it on the Mac with Bootcamp just like plain old Windows XP.

thanks... for the times I would use the extra features I passed and installed win xp instead... I think I screwed up when installing windows though and did a ntfs setting.. now in windows I can access any other folders.. I guess I should redo it under fat 32... is there an easier way to convert the drive or does a fresh install of xp need to be done?

You can convert from Fat32 -> NTFS but not the other-way around. Sorry, but if you must use Fat32 a re-install is the only way.

I don't think you screwed up. You can't access the Mac OSX partition / folders from Windows regardless of what file format Windows is running on.

Though if you want to access the Windows folders while in OSX you need to have Windows running on Fat32....

You might want to peruse this FAQ before deciding to re-install.

The differences are these.

If you use NTFS for windows then the mac side will only be able to read the windows partiton and not write to it.

If you use FAT32 for windows then the mac side can read and write to the windows partition.


As for reading the mac side from windows. This requires an aditional utility. Something like [url]http://www.macdrive.com/[/url] though I belive others are available.

on another note

media center edition of windows xp doesn't support the sound card in windows right now on the mac mini so if you are going to stream you are fine but if you are planing on using it to watch videos and other things forget it the sound card doesn't work yet

Funny enough I just revisited this post.

I do have another question......

In windows (nfts) it's not reading my external USB drive. It's currently read/writeable on the mac side but not in bootcamp. If I could make that drive readable and writeable so that windows sees it, then I wouldnt have to reinstall windows using FAT32. I could just take a file, move it to the external drive and then switch to windows and get the file that way..

is there a way to do this?

What format is your external drive in? A Fat32 drive should be readable and writable in both OS X and XP.

I would guess its in NFTS, however I formatted it from the MAC...

If it was in FAT it would be read by windows and automatically be listed in " my computer" right?

Ok quick question...

my external is formatted mac OS extended journaled. I need to create a new partition in FAT so that it can be read when I use bootcamp. However when I use disk utility to create a partition it says it would have to format the whole harddrive and I'd lose what is currently on there..

Is there anyway that I can do this without losing what I currently have on there?
