Whats the difference between the Macintosh Ipod and a windows ipod? When i was trying to put music on my ipod for the first time (on a window computer) it told me that: in needed to restore and update my ipod to make it a "windows ipod" because it was a "macintosh ipod". Whatever that means. So, whats the difference?
My guess is that you aren't the original owner of this iPod & that it was previously used with a Mac. No big deal - just go ahead & reformat it for Windows.
