I would like to copy songs from an iPod to my PC but the iPod was formatted using a Mac. The TouchCopy software tells me that I need to format the iPod for Windows. Will I lose all the songs on the iPod if I do this?

Yes, you will lose all your data if you're formatting your iPod. I suggest downloading and installing the trial version of MacDrive from the official web page. This is an application developed by Mediafour Corporation, that will allow your Windows computer to read iPod. Once MacDrive is installed, just open it, connect your device, open up TouchCopy and you should be able to transfer the songs.
