Question Steps to upgrade OS/install media card/load media: do I have it right?

Please Login to Remove!

Per the Media FAQ, I need to upgrade to BB OS 4.5 from 4.2.x to be able to install/use my 8G media card.

I have an 8830 with Mac OS/Pocketmac sync. I know someone who has a PC.

Do I have this right:
1. Install BB Desktop Mgr onto the PC
2. Download BB OS 4.5 from the upgrade site to PC then install onto my BB via the Desktop Mgr
3. Install 8G Media card into my BB
4. Hook up BB to my Mac and load media

I'm nervous about hooking my BB up to a PC and then back to my Mac. I feel like there would be some kind of formatting conflict or something that would interfere with continuing to sync w/ my Mac (kind of like when you format your portable USB drive to your PC and then it doesn't work on a Mac). I'm sure this fear shows my naivete about how my BB works with PC and Mac, but I just want to ask the question so that I don't horribly screw up anything.
