Kind of, but not really: Windows can't read a mac formatted iPod by itself, so you'd need a tool such as Macdrive or Macopener to read and write to the iPod.

But I'm fairly sure both of those products aren't free, so I'd just go with reformatting instead.

If the PC and Mac can talk to each other over a network, you could copy the PC's music files to the Mac and load them onto your iPod from there.

No nothing will happen to your ipod. I have a mac formatted ipod and just recently I plugged it into my sisters pc and all it said was that you needed to install the program. I posted the same question about 2 weeks ago. If you format it to a pc, I was told it will be to read both computers. You must put your itunes on manual though so you dont lose your mp3's
