Recently I installed Windows 8 in my MacBook Pro (15" with 500GB hard drive, Early 2011 model). And here is how I partitioned it: Partition 01 (80 GB) : OS X Mountain Lion Partition 02 (340 GB) : Common Storage (HFS+) Partition 03 (80 GB) : Windows 8
Now to access the 'Common Storage' from Windows, I tried 'MacDrive' which didnt work in Windows 8 then I tried Paragon HFS+ for Windows and it worked, now I am able to access both the HFS+ from windows but with two problems in playing media files.
1. Not able to play media files using the Music app from the Metro apps. (Not a big issue) 2. Windows media player is able to play the files from the HFS+ but it doesn't recognize the mp3 tags from the audio files. So I am not able load the same iTunes library here in Windows.

Does it recognize the tags properly if you move (or copy) the file in question to the partition with Windows 8?
No.. I tried copying a file to the desktop and tried.. It didn't recognize..
