Chapter 6.  Using Advanced Features  >  Using Your iPod as a Windows Disk

Using Your iPod as a Windows Disk

The iPod, as shipped, is formatted as a Macintosh disk. However, when you connect it to a Windows-based PC and run the supplied installation software, the iPod is transformed into a Windows-formatted disk. From that point on it can be used only with Windows PCs, unless you convert it back to the Mac format as described in “Switching from Windows to Mac,” later in this chapter.

Like any hard disk, you can transfer files and applications from your computer to your iPod and take them with you wherever you go. The iPod is smart enough to keep your files separate from your music collection so that they will not be accidentally erased when you update your music.
