  1. i can’t find any way to change firmware for a mac. is it possible to do this change on a pc, and then change it to work on a mac?

  2. yeah. can i change the firmware on the video ipod to the ipod touch version on a pc, and then reformat the ipod to MAC when i plug it into my mac laptop? or will it only work on the pc?

  3. Nevermind. I got it to work. I didn’t realize they had changed the cross platform problem. It used to be you could start an iPod on pc, but when you reformat to Mac it would stay that way. This did it automatically. Thanks though!
