    Ipod not playing music after first iMac sync
    Took the plunge and bought an iMac moving from Windows. Transferred my music library to my iMac but was missing play counts and ratings. Not bothered by that.

    Plugged in iPod Classic and got the warning message that iPod had been synced with another library and do I want to erase and resync. Selected yes.

    Sync completed successfully transferring all music, video and photos to iPod. However when I try to play any music the time counter stays at 0:00. Ipod worked fine before sync albeit I hadn't synced with Windows PC for a couple of months. Same goes for Video when I try to play although I can view Photos fine (guess they don't 'play' as such)

    One thing I did notice in settings in iTunes for iPod was it had format as Windows.

    Surely I must be able to use my iPod on a Mac having used it on a Windows PC after all I read nothing on the various 'switching to Mac' tips saying otherwise.

    Really appreciate any help. Many thanks

    I would just reformat the iPod for Mac and start over. Hopefully that will kickstart it.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
