The Great Migration: XP to OS X

Jim, it turns out if you start your iPod (video) on a PC running Windows XP, you should avoid attaching it to a Mac and subsequently allowing that Mac to run the iPod Updater. You'll end up with a corrupt file system.

We'll have updates as we get them here in the studio.

Next post will include a walkthrough of a fix for this, assuming I've got one.
