I believe that's for licencing issues. I can't use my
"windows-formatted" (FAT32) ipod with my mac without reformatting to
use HFS+ (which would then make it unreadable on all other OSes). That
and I can't seem to get it to mount manually - the FAT32 driver
doesn't appear to exist on my leopard install.
