I did the exact same thing with my U2 iPod. In fact I used my iPod to txfer my 3.3 Gb "My Documents" folder to my iMac, including all my music, using the iPod. When you plug your iPod into your mac for the first time, it will give you some kind of notice asking if you want to sync it with your mac. CLICK NO. If you click yes it will erase your ipod if you (presumably) don't have your music on your Mac yet.

I used a program called Senuti ( to put back all my iPod songs onto my new Mac, and it worked great. It's free, too.

I didn't think it would be compatible, I'm glad it is though, I've got a couple of hard to find albums on my iPod, I thought I'd have to delete them!
