Windows iPod usable on a Mac?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I unfortunately use a PC at work (laptop) but its new and has an iLink (it a Fujitsu Siemens) and would hate to waste it. I also have an iBook 600Mhz at home.

So... can I use a PC formatted iPod on a Mac? That would be nice...
I'm having deja-vu and amnesia at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

My Apple store sales rep say it is possible. In fact, he strongly suggest I buy the PC version.

You can use a PC iPod with the Mac.

You can also use a Mac iPod with a PC, if you get xPlay or EphPod.

You can also convert a PC iPod to Mac through Apple's iPod firmware installer for Mac.

And although Apple doesn't support it, you can also convert a Mac iPod to PC, though it's a bit tricky.

You should buy the PC iPod because it comes with the PC software -- which unlike iTunes is not downloadable -- as well as the 4-pin to 6-pin FireWire converter. You don't get these extras in the Mac iPod package, even though the price is the same.
