how do i change the format for my ipod nano from windows to mac? i can't get the ipod updater because it is in the windows format... any suggestions?
you really need to calm down. not everyone here has an answer to your question. you were given two options: reformat it using apple's iPod updater or keep it formatted as a windows iPod. if you don't want to lose your settings, it looks like you're going to have to keep it under the windows setting. there's no other way. mad jew's solution seems good for what you need to do.minty-freshness said:is it REALLY THAT HARD TO REPLY TO ANY OF MY POSTS!? ALL I WANT IS SOME HELP. I WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES. IS THAT REALLY TOO HARD!?
would the settings really be difficult to get back? if you so badly want it to be mac-formatted, you'll have to restore your settings yourself. this, to me, doesn't seem like such a big deal; though, unlike mad jew, i don't have a windows computer that i'd want to keep synced alongside my mac.minty-freshness said:thanks for the help.. but i don't want to reset it to the factory settings.
It will charge with either operating system but you cant sync with both of them if its windows formatted. In other words it wont hook up to the mac OS itunes.Scarlet Fever said:a windows-formatted iPod works on Mac and Windows. I've proven this with several iPods, including an iPod Shuffle, a Nano, and a 5th Gen Video.
