    It could be Windows only..typically I thought those things worked like flash drives though..I don't know why it wouldn't work unless it is formatted in an some way in which the Mac can't read it..

    I don't know that device. Are you usually able to simply drag & drop .mp3 files or do you have to use some sort of software to transfer files to the device? If you needed software in the past, I'd guess it was some sort of DRM that the mac doesn't understand.

    It's not officially supported in OS X. I did find this this though http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27338, which implies there is a Firmware update out there that will make it work, but I'll be darned if I could find it. Sounds like you got some investigating to do.

    Happy Googling :)

    Or you could of course just join that forum, and as the guy where he got the Firmware. :)
