question regarding iShuffle from Mac format to Windows

my girlfriend bought a dell, and wants to be able to charge and use her ishuffle on it, but i previously had loaded some songs from my library on my mac.

what is the best way to go about setting it up so she can now use it on windows?

will she still be able to charge it by plugging it into a mac, even if your not transferring files once it is reformatted?

thanks

you won't need to make a change at all. on one of the computers, change the settings in itunes so that it doesn't open when the ipod is connected. (if you dont change the setting, on the computer it is not syncing with, itunes will open up and ask if you want to erase everything and sync it with that computer. you can just say no, but turning off the setting will make it easier)
