    Quick question.. are there any issues using a windows formatted Ipod with OSX? Most of my workstations are macs but I am thinking i'll format with windows just in case I ever want to use a windows machine.

    my room mate's is formatted for windows and he uses a powerbook here at school, but his home computer runs windows so he likes to have both.

    no problems so far from him.

    i think you can only update firmware on a pc with a windows formatted pod.

    Macs will happily read and play with Windows and Mac formatted pods.

    Windows will only read Windows formatted pods.
