    I recently switched to Macs and purchased a Macbook Pro(which I love!). I'm still getting used to the OS, but I ran into a problem.

    I was using a Windows computer before for my iPod (classic, not sure if that matters). I would like to transfer the songs I have from my windows iPod, onto my new Mac, but I'm not sure if that's possible(I think I may have read on Apple's website you can't switch from Mac to Windows but I'm not sure, but thats besides the point).

    I don't really want to download a program to move my songs from the iPod onto the Mac.

    Thanks in advance

    I know you don't want to download software, but maybe you could give exPod a try, as it is done with such software on both platforms anyway. I don't know if it can work with FAT32 formatted iPods though.
