    Just a quick question but am I right in that you cannot charge a G3 iPod using the USB2 cable.

    Reason being is that I have just bought one for work and it doesn't seem to work :( .

    Thanks for any replies.

    You are correct.

    You can sync a 3G ipod with USB or Firewire, but can only charge it with Firewire.
