need some help here--i have 5G ipod that's sync'd w/ my macbook, but i was wondering if there is any way that i can:
1) sync this ipod w/ my PC
2) save the songs that are on my ipod to my PC itunes
3) manage my ipod/ playlists/ etc. using both my macbook and my PC

does anyone know if there is a program(s) that will let me do this??

If you turn Auto Sync off you can manage songs/playlist manually. If the songs are purchased from iTunes you can move them between computers via iTunes, if not, you will need third party apps on the machine that doesn't have the songs resident.

I don't believe you can go "cross platform." You can go on 2 macs or 2 pc's but not pc to mac or vice versa.

as long as it's PC formatted you should be able to.

PC's can't read HFS+ though.
