If you dont plan to use your Windows PC to play songs purchased from the iTunes Music Store anymore (for example, if youre getting rid of it), you should deauthorize it. This Apple Support document provides more information about authorization and deauthorization. (If youve never purchased from the iTunes Music Store, you can skip this step.)
Heres how to deauthorize iTunes:
1. Open iTunes on your PC.
2. From the Advanced menu, choose Deauthorize Computer.
3. Select Deauthorize Computer for Apple Account and enter your Apple ID and password.
Now you have to authorize your new Mac to play those songs:
1. Open iTunes on your new Mac.
2. Select a song youve purchased (in your library or the Purchased Music playlist).
3. Click the Play button. iTunes will ask you to enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase the song.
Step 8: Reformat your iPod to use with your Mac
Apple uses different drive formats for the Mac and Windows versions of the iPod. Visit this Apple Support document for detailed instructions on how to reformat your iPod to use it with your Mac.
Step 9: Sync your iPod with your iTunes Music Library on your Mac
At last, weve reached the end. All your files reside on your new Mac, youve authorized iTunes and your iPod is Mac-compatible. Next time you plug in your iPod and launch iTunes, it should sync automatically.
Congratulations on joining the Mac family (and reading this far). We know youll enjoy your Mac experience.

This is true. You cannot use an iPod formatted on a mac as an external hard drive on the pc. If you need to have this functionality, the iPod must be formatted as fat32.spiffymac said:I have heard that you cannot use a mac formatted iPod on a windows pc as an external hard drive... is there anyone who can tell me that I'm wrong?
I'd LOVE to reformat to a mac iPod, but I still need my 60gb to transfer large files.
