Why Should you get Parallel Desktop for Mac



A lot of PC users are watching closely on the growth of popularity on Apple products. Parallels Desktop for Mac provides an awesome alternative - running Windows directly from within Mac OS X.

The developers have tried to create as seamless an experience as possible, incorporating features like Coherence, which let you open a Windows application from the Mac OS X Dock, and SmartSelect, which lets you open Mac documents with Windows applications (and vice versa).

The benefit of this is it is now possible to run various program like Windows XP or Vista on an Apple Mac computer.

With the Parallel Desktop for MAC, it now enables Apple MAC user to use Windows, Linux, and more side by side with MAC OS or any Intel Powered MAC without rebooting.

There’s a lot of benefits Parallel Desktop has to offer and these includes opening windows file with MAC Application and Mac files with Windows Application using parallel SmartSelect. Share files and folders between Windows and MAC.

It’s now possible to browse windows folder and access files without launching windows with Parallel Explorer. Even running selected PC games on Mac with supports to 3D graphics.

These key features give a lot more convenience to Apple Mac users. Imagine running windows like a native Mac application without rebooting.

Parallel not only gives you free-floating Windows apps in its Coherence mode, but it also drops the Windows Taskbar atop the dock (or you can move it to the top of the screen, under the Finder menu bar).

The Parallel includes a set of utilities that lets you do all kinds of interesting things. There's a migration tool (Parallels Transporter); a program that lets you browse a virtual hard drive without actually launch Parallels (Parallels Explorer); a program for managing the size of virtual disks (Parallels Image Tool).

New to a recent upgrade is SmartSelect, which lets you associate file types with applications on the guest operating system.

For example, if someone sends you a Word document via Apple Mail, you can use SmartSelect to designate the Windows version of Word to open the file when you double-click it.

You can also reverse this, so double-clicking files in Windows causes them to be opened in Mac applications. Even for PC gamer, this has been a big breakthrough because for gamers, the biggest advantage Parallels Desktop 3.0 offers is the ability to run games.
Almost all games in the PC space require 3D graphics acceleration, even the casual ones, and up to now, Parallels has not had any 3D graphics acceleration at all.

I have macintosh so when i put the external hard drive it works with no problems but when i want to get sth as a backup from windows ,,the pc cant see the hard drive,except if i formated the hard drive,how...


Your Mac can read Windows hard drives, but it can't write to them. There is a free software to allow the Mac to read Windows formatted drives, but it's a bit technical. You have to install Mac-FUSE (search Google) and NTFS-3g (go to www.macupdate.com and search for NTFS-3g).

There is commercial software that will allow Windows to see Mac OS Extended (HFS+) formatted hard drives, including MacDrive. I believe it's about $50. If you are using Windows on your Mac via Apple's BootCamp feature and you have Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard", make sure you install the drivers from the Snow Leopard disc that will allow Windows to read Mac formatted disks.

You can also format your external drive as FAT 32 from your Mac (use Disk Utility in /Applications/Utilities). But FAT is ancient. That's MS-DOS's filesystem. It's not great. But if you want to do it, use your Mac (yes, your Mac because it can format larger drives as FAT than Windows can):

**WARNING***WARNING*** this will ERASE all data on the hard drive. Back up first!***WARNING
1. Click the magnifying glass in the upper right corner of your Mac's screen.
2. Type: Disk Utility
3. Click the Disk Utility Application that comes up (or press Return if you're using Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.6).
4. Click the icon of your external hard drive.
5. Click the Erase tab.
6. Change the format to FAT 32 and Give the drive a one word name, no more than 8 letters.
7 Click the Erase button. ***WARNING*** This will erase your drive!
8. Now the drive can be read by Windows or Mac OS X.

Whew! Lots of info. I hope this helped. Please let us know if it helped. Let us know if it didn't, too. We'll do our best to help. If this helped you, please rate me.

Good luck!

Do the volume keys still work when you are booted in to OS X?
Also, try reinstalling the Bootcamp drivers that will appear when you insert an OS X disk when it's booted in to Windows.

Virtual PC 7


What type of Mac is it? PowerPC G4, Laptop, etc? You can copy the files from the Mac partition to the mounted Virtual PC volume and have the XP side find the new files. It is duplication but it is the only way I have found to work without causing other problems.
