Let me get this straight... Is it true that you can use and iPod with both a pc and a mac because of formating issues? Since I bought an iPod to use with my mac its been formatted for the mac but say if I wanted to use it on my friends pc can I without formatting my iPod for pc?

I am pretty sure that the new ipods come formatted for use with both pcs and macs right out of the box. if you have reformatted it at all, that might be an issue, but, if you have only uploaded music to it, you should be able to sync it up with a pc too.

It will work fine, but you need to format the iPod on a windoze machine first, it wont work the other way round.
