questions for mac/PC transfer.
hello!
i'm thinking about getting an iPod, but would use it with both Macs and PCs. i have some questions about YamiPod:

- can i install both Mac and PC versions on the iPod?
- could i transfer mp3s to and from the iPod to Macs and PCs both?

thanks!

yup, just format your iPod in FAT32 (use the windows restore utility).

Re: questions for mac/PC transfer.
great!

so, just to make this clear:
i'll be able to move mp3s from any PC or Mac to the iPod?


after i format the iPod in Windows, when do i install the Mac version? it's .gz, so do i have to download yamipod on a Mac, then copy it from there?

or can i just download the .gz file and copy it in windows?


_thanks so much_ for your help! if i can get this working, you can count in a paypal contribution!

Re: questions for mac/PC transfer.
Once you *windows formatted* your iPod:
- copy to iPod the .exe from the .zip for the windows version
- copy to iPod the binary from the .gz for the linux version
- extract from the .dmg the mac app (this has to be done under mac)

You'll be able to run, without installing anything (except copying the audiolib under linux), YamiPod under mac, linux and windows.
