Hello. I've searched and read some threads similar to what I want to do, but nothing exact, so here goes. I have an iPod, iBook, and Windows XP. We also use XP at work. I currently synch my iPod with iTunes in my iBook. It is mac formatted. I want to be able to take files back and forth to work using my iPod. Disk is enabled, but alas, the XP machines want to format it. I can reformat the iPod on my XP machine, and be able to use it for file transfers, but will it sync up to my mac as it does now? I am unable to install third party tools on work machine, so have to work within that context. Any advice on best way to go about this would be appreciated. Basically I still want to sync tunes via iBook, but need to transfer files back and forth between XP machines and iBook. I dont really care what the iPod is formatted as, as long as it works. Thanks.
