    It will. You just have to re-format it when you hook it up to your Mac.

    Going the other way (mac--->PC), unfortunately, is a bit tricky. Requires 3rd-party software, etc.

    Per Apple, a Windows-formatted iPod may work on your Mac (OS X understand the Windows file system), but they won't support that configuration if you run into any problems.

    A Mac-formatted iPod definitely will not sync with a Windows machine (Windows doesn't understand the OS X file system), but iTunes on the Windows computer can be used to restore the iPod back to Windows format.

    Apple covers it all in detail here, including the reformatting part tveric mentioned:
