Connect it to the Mac, and in iTunes you should have an option to do a Restore of it.

Also, it's not necessary to format it for a Mac - it'll work when formatted for Windows. Personally, I'd format it for the Mac anyway, but its important to note its not necessary.

If you format it for either, you can't restore it on either. BUT, if you format it in windows, you can update the songs and what not from both mac and windows, but if you format it for mac, you can only update the songs in osx... I choose windows (I have windows on my macbook and a pc, besides my mac), it makes it easier to get songs from my friends and what not...
