    I don't think the newer versions of iTunes support FW syncing, what version are you using?

    But the ipod shouldn't be shown as a drive?or even detected by ipoddisk?

    I have an older iPod Mini that charges and syncs just fine through FireWire via the newest iTunes. Don't think it could be the cable, as it either works or it doesn't - if it charges it should sync.

    Hmmm....

    unfortunetly I don't have another machine with firewire to test..
    I somehow doubt this is an original cable,and if this ipod works with its usb cable either in a windows machine and in my ibook..it should work with fw too...
    I've tried to reset it,put it in disk mode,restore it (in mac) and it only charges,no way it detects..
