Your mac should be able to read your windows-formatted ipod, and you should be able to get the music off of it before formatting for mac. Try using a program like Senuti to do the transfer. I believe it worked for me when I made the switch.

I use a PC at work and a Mac at home. I was always able to connect the iPod to the Mac when it was Windows formatted. Windows didn't like it, though, when it was Mac formatted.
