Changing an iPod formatted for Windows to Mac

I ordered a used iPod off eBay that is formatted for Windows. Can I change it to Mac? Thank you.

Yup, I think the utility has some option to reformat the iPod for Mac use.

Yes, my girlfriend just did that very thing to her iPod mini when she bought a new PB. Just run the iPod updater utility. Her iPod actually worked on the Mac while in Windows format, though I don't think the iSync features would have worked properly.
