Hello,

I was wondering how I would go about changing my 2nd Generation iPod from running on Macintosh to Windows.

I have done this once before (in reverse), however I don't remember how.

Thanks,
Connor

you should be able to open up disk utility (in your apps folder on your mac) and format it to DOS format (FAT32)
failing that, you *might* be able to (if your pc will recognize the mac-formatted ipod at all) open up disk manager (in computer management, in the control panel of your windows pc) and format it as FAT32. then you'll be able to install the firmware on it after you've formatted it.

I thought 3rd generation iPods were the first to work on Windows??

iirc second generations work on windows, but at first they needed musicmatch jukebox until itunes for windows was released.

Download the latest iPod Updater for Windows, and do a Restore.
