    Hey y'all, I'm just about to purchase my first iPod mini and I'm wondering if it will work with USB 1.0. I have an old computer, and it does not have USB 2.0. I didn't see anything on the Apple website concerning this.

    It should work, but song transfers are going to be painfully slow. You could pick up a $29 firewire card added to your PC and that will make things so much nicer! :)

    Sometimes it won't even work at all. Check Apple's support site for more info. And you can get a FireWire card for much cheaper. Newegg.com has some, but check PriceWatch for even better deals. Just be careful about sites with low ratings.
