    Any news on the usb connection for the ipod, as I want it to transfer files from work, will I be able to transfer files via old USB 1?

    Yes - USB1.1 support is part of the USB2 specification - it'll be slow as hell though. Also I *think* USB transfer is only supported on PC's, although I'm not sure there.

    I don't believe it (USB) is supported under Mac OS.

    Apple has said USB transfers will only be from the PC not from the Mac since many mac users have FW built in

    Re: ipod USB 2.0

    According to this article from thinksecret Apple will release the iPod 2.01 update this week that will allow you to use the USB/Firewire combo cable.

    USB 2.0 is only for PC... that's what Apple's site says.

    Will Apple ever bring out a firewire - firewire cable. I have a 4 pin firewire socket on my laptop but it means when i transfer files to my iPod the battery gets eaten into quite significantly (as 4 pin doesn't provide power), so I would love to able to charge and sync. I lack USB 2.
