    can ipod be an exturnel hard drive for osx and xp
    I am new here
    and a new fan of the apple products
    I am the minority in Israel that betrayed Microsoft and switched to Mac

    I recently switched and I need to run osx and xp on my macbook
    and I need to move my files from one os to the other
    and the best way I could think of is an external hard drive witch is my new ipod
    I used it as a hard drive on the xp then when I connected it to the macbook with the osx running it do to my ipod something
    and now when I plug it in when xp running it ask me to format the ipod

    is there a way that I could use my ipod as an external hard drive on a xp and osx without formatting it every time

    sorry about my english

    I think if you format it for XP it'll be fine with OS X. But if you format it for OS X, XP won't be able to read it.
