Will HP shuffle work on an Apple laptop and PC together?

I just purchased a shuffle that is branded HP Shuffle and the packaging only mention working with Windows. I purchased it for my wife to use on her Apple laptop but it would also be nice to use on our home PC as well. Is there any problems with this setup and specifically for the player working on the Apple laptop?

Thanks

I haven't used the shuffle, but my guess is that it will work.

The only general differences between Apple and HP iPods is the HP logo stamped on the back and the emphais on Windows support.

For the Shuffle to work on both PC and Mac, I would leave it formatted for Windows. If you format it for Mac, Windows will not read it.

Also, HP doesn't support Mac formatted iPods.

the shuffle doesnt need formatting to go cross platform. you can, however, only sync the shuffle with 1 computer at a time.


using it for data, it is no different than a thumb drive (will work on any computer)
