    FAT32 formatted in the long term?
    I was just wondering..

    If my iPod is formatted in FAT32, so i can transfer files etc.., will my mac be able to install all the updates my iPod will need?
    Also will i be able to install progs like GoPod which removes the EU volume limit?

    Any other issues with a FAT 32 iPod, other than the file size limit (and of course that element of Microsoft evil which will have infiltrated my mac world :ninja: )

    Id say eformat as a windows ipod, not fat32, some other format, and it can play nice with your mac.

    I mean format as another windows format, not fat32, then it should work fine on both mac and pc.
