    Just a quick question, with the new ipods shipping in windows format are they now making a universal software for the ipod for both systems? eg if it ships with supposed windows format is it actually windows or just a universal one

    iTunes 7 (Mac) was unable to handle my 30GB 5G iPod when it came to upgrading the firmware, and if I let it go ahead it would have reformatted the iPod to Mac format.

    So the answer is no. They still want Mac iPods to use HFS+ even though they can sync to the Windows/FAT32 formatted iPods...
