    Quick question. If i download some program to take music off my iPod on a Mac, can I plug my PC formatted iPod into the Mac, drag the files off, put it on my itunes, reformat my iPod for Mac and put all the music back? I have mine set for manual right now and I don't my music backed up :( ...Will it recognize my PC iPod if I plug it into my forthcoming MBP?

    Thanks a ton!

    I think the short answer is yes.

    However,
    I am not experienced with 3rd party programs. I guess I can only assume it will work.

    But the PC formatted iPod will show up on a mac.

    Example.. I formatted mine via windows, then use my iTunes on my iMac to fill it with movies, music etc. I do this so I can plug my ipod into any PC or mac and use it as a external Drive.

    Good luck
