    I currently have my iPod docked with my Windows, but I want to make a perminant move onto a Apple MacBook, so I was asking for help since I see no documentation on the Web (That I can find), and in the Manuals.

    Should I take all my songs onto the Apple harddrive? Add them to iTunes, then delete the account? I am stuck and need your help!

    If you move your songs onto your MacBooks HD then you'll have no issues with the iPod, basically what you will end up having to do is just wipe the songs from teh iPod and re-upload them to "sync" it with your iTunes library. You won't need to format the iPods hard-drive to Mac format, as macintosh reads FAT32 (the format that's used with your windows-formatted iPod).

    Basically just move your songs to the MacBook with dvds or an External HDD and plug your iPod in and you'll be fine.
