    My MBP screen has failed on me. The cost to repair means that I have bought a windows laptop to replace it.

    My iPod was Mac formatted. So what I have done is I have copied it's contents onto a folder in Windows.

    My question is: if I reformat as a Windows iPod, can I copy back the contents from the folder to the iPod and it will sync with iTunes on the windows laptop?

    iPods aren't really formatted anymore (last I checked) so what do you mean?

    iPod classics are.

    In answer to the OP, I'm not sure, but presumably you can copy the files into iTunes for Windows and sync them back that way if your idea fails.
