O, don't expect issues with the tags. I have a mac and an FMR and it
works great. I have about 11gb of music on my FMR and all the tags are
perfect. The only thing I can tell you to expect is slow transfer
times. Not only is USB 1.1 slow, but sometimes OS X is kind of slow
reading and writing to FAT32. Someone posted earlier that it works
better with mac than with pc, though, and having used both, overall I'm
inclined to agree.
