iPod Shuffle Tips and Tricks

Excellent iPod Shuffle review by Scott Knaster, including this bit regarding the effects of Apple’s decision to format the Shuffle as FAT32 (the Windows disk format), rather than HFS+:

Apple’s support for FAT32 has a list of seemingly innocent characters you can’t use in file names, such as * and [ . If you try copying a file with any of these characters in its name from an HFS volume to your shuffle, the Finder will complain. (The details are provided here.)
