    I would Imagine so but we didn't try as the ipod in question has broken sound output, we don't want to push our luck.

    Thanks for the post but For whatever reason I get stuck when I try to format the Ipod it either says that the disk is in use or an error occured. I have checked task manager and no apple programs are running but still it will not format the drive. Any ideas? I have a 5th Gen 30 Gig Ipod

    Ca

    I tried to format it as WBFS with the manager 3.0, but it fails and an error occured .. I previously formated it as FAT32 and renamed it in iTunes. It's a 4th generation tought.
