I have Windows XP Media Center Edition and Ubuntu 9.04 in my PC on two different hard drives, my question is how can I access ubuntu's hard drive from xp. Is there an easy way to do this without having to install ubuntu again. Thanks Cheers!

Hey man I installed this little program and I can see the hard drive where ubuntu is (because before I installed the program I couldnt). But when I tried to drag a file from XP to Ubuntu it gives me this error

Error Copying file or folder
"Cannot create or replace Pineapple Express:The Disk is write protected. Remove the write protected or use another disk."

When I tried to move a file from Ubuntu to XP it worked fine but when I tried to do XP to Ubuntu I got this error. Would you happen to know how to fix it? I would really appreciate it. Thanks again.
