    hi i switched recently and have a mac and pc in my house with itunes, if i get my new ipod and install it on the mac will i be able to read it when i plug it in to a windoze pc so i can transfer files etc....

    my main question is if i install the ipod on my mac will the pc be able to read and write to it.

    Install the ipod on windows then you can use it on both .. If you wanna transfer files via ipod then you need to click on enable disk :D :eek:

    i think that your mac will be fine with a windows formatted ipod (ive got one and it works fine!), but i don't think that it works the other way. hope that helps
