iPod help needed

I just sold my iPod mini to a co-worker. I used it on a Mac, but she has a PC. What needs to be done to it so it will work on her computer? I assume there's some type of re-formatting necessary.

Yep, just go to http://www.apple.com/ipod/download/ and download the updater for Windows. When she connects the ipod, run the updater, and choose Restore. It will reformat the ipod for her to use on her pc.

When I bought my first 10GB ipod years ago I crapped myself when I got home and it was the Mac version. Thankfully it was very easy to download the Windows updater and switch it to the Windows version.
