I believe you can. i don't even think you have to format it...cause i know my sister saves files on her ipod...as it shows up in my computer as a removable disk.

arent most MP3/media players in FAT format?
My PSP and MP3 are both FAT by default.

Apple is a completely different beast then 'most media players'.

And yeah, to use it for file storage (ive used mine as hw) you dont even need to format it. Though you could, and then probably get away with using a shareware pocketpc operating system. That would be awesome.
