    Sweet Slideshow Snow Monkeys!
    Does anyone know if the AV cable that many digital cameras come with will work with the iPod? Anyone tried this? I don't have one here or I'd test it.

    I was hoping to show a slideshow this weekend while at the family's for Easter but my AV cable hasn't been delivered yet.

    Having just looked at the iPod Photo A/V cable and the one for my camera, I can tell you with a definite NO they are not all compatible.

    And in truth, plugging the wrong cable type into the iPod may or may not damage it.

    Great Televised Peter Tork!
    I found the cable from my camera and tested it out before reading your post. Although the connector fit fine into the iPod headphone jack - it didn't work. Couldn't see the slideshow on my TV.
    Now hopefully I didn't do any damage.
