    Can I use the firewire cord for a 3rd gen iPod on a 5th gen? USB 2.0 can't be the ONLY way to transfer data, can it?

    They took out firewire to make the iPod thinner.

    Firewire can only be used to charge.
    You can use USB 1.1 :D ;) :D

    Apple contacted us last year and informed us that many people had been having connection problems through USB 1.1, so they want everybody to know that only USB 2.0 is guaranteed to work with an iPod.

    Talk about covering your backs.

    well, good, why cater to apple computers customers? It makes sense, why would anyone who hasn't purchased a mac in a year or more want a new ipod?
