    Erm guys, I am intending to get a 15GB iPod. My windows does nto have Firewire, so is it true that I have to get a dock and a USB port, sold seperatly, in order for my iPod to work? Btw my com has USB 2.0 ports

    You don't have to get a dock. You can plug the cable straight into the iPod. There is a special cable for USB. It runs $20. If you shop carefully you can probably find a PCI Firewire card for that much or less.

    You can get them from Apple :) The "Dock Connector" is the connector on the bottom of the iPod. It's exactly the same as the connector on the back of the dock.
