    Is it at all possible to run an iPod on Windows 98/Me? The software for iPod claims it requires Windows 2000 or later.

    nope, 2000 pro or later. The software will not install on a 98 or me box.

    people that buy iPods run 98/me?

    fucking wierd.

    i dont think windows really did any sort of firewire support then anyway, + their usb support was a bunch of bullshit.

    get XP or at least 2000 prof, but xp pro would be the best bet for an upgrade (im assuming you will stay with windows)

    :werd: Nearly all the machines at my office run 98. We have better things to spend our money on than XP licenses for computers that are just used for the basics, we'll upgrade the OS when we buy new machines.
