    My bro's iPod needed to be updated, so I connect it and watch iTunes come up. It says it is Windows formatted and needs to be reformatted for Mac. But... I feel kinda stupid asking this, but....I don't know how. Anyways, how do I do it? Do I restore it to original factory settings and then will a message pop up asking to reformat? Thanks.

    It should still work as a Windows formatted iPod however you can reformat it for mac by clicking on the Reformat button in iTunes when the iPod is plugged into a Mac. Do this from a PC and you'll get a Windows formatted iPod. :)

    Mmm, yeah. I'm not very good at it yet.

    I'm surprised that it's complaining but iTunes 7 should be able to help you to do that by restoring the system software onto it.

    I did it a few years ago, but I don't exactly remember.
