Install the ipod on windows then you can use it on both .. If you wanna transfer files via ipod then you need to click on enable disk

i think that your mac will be fine with a windows formatted ipod (ive got one and it works fine!), but i don't think that it works the other way. hope that helps

If you format ipod on Mac then you'd need an app like this to read Mac ipod on xp etc
