    I know to do the reverse, you use xplay -- is there an app to use a PC ipod on a mac? -- Either for music or file transfer?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    A Mac should be able to use a Windows formatted iPod just fine.

    Yup, i just plugged mine in and used it just fine. I even used a program to pull the songs off of it to transfer all my music, worked like a charm. I did reformat it for mac.

    Yeah but remember, Mac formatted iPods will only work on a Mac while Windows formatted works both ways.
