Can I use my Mac formatted iPod on a Windows PC?

Updated

Yes, however you must purchase third party software such as MacOpener or MacDrive.

If you don’t plan to continue connecting your iPod to a Mac, it is generally a much better idea to use the “Restore” function of the iPod Updater utility for Windows to format your iPod as a Windows drive.
