I know iTunes doesn't recognise it, but do the iTunes preferences recognise it?

At a guess, have you connected the Mac before and told it not to sync libraries?

Also, you know that reformatting it will probably work (assuming the iPod Updater can see it) as a last resort - you'll lose everything on it though.

I know formatting it will make me see it on my Mac but then it won't work for my PC :'(. Under preferences it still isn't showing up

Have you quit iTunes and reopened it? Sometimes my iPod isn't recognised straight away if I manually open iTunes at the same time.

I've tried that and a few restarts and still nothing :(
