    iPod formatting
    right now my 3rd gen iPod is formatted for Windows compatibility, but if i get an iBook is there a way to format it to the Mac or do i even need to worry about that?

    You dont need to worry about it. Macs can read Fat32 just as well as their format, however Windows can only seen Fat32 and cant see Mac's format so I'd leave it Fat 32

    Yep just leave it as Windows formatted that way you can still connect to windows and mac

    If you format it to mac you lose all of your songs and can only use it on macs
