    Hey guys,

    I believe there is a new Dock Connector on the iPod Touch/iPhone.

    Are old iPod cables compatible with the new connector, as in can I use the cable from my 5.5G Video and old 1G Nano with the Touch I intend to buy?

    Thanks

    When I had my 5 G I had a dock and a cable and today I got my touch - the touch comes with a dock adapter and the cable is identical.

    This is something that has come up before on the forums, next time you should perform a search so as not to create repetitive threads. :)

    yes the new ipod comes with a different connector, this is because you can disconnect the touch without having to eject the ipod!!! This is the coolest thing because if you are in a hurry you can quickly grab the ipod...I haven't tried to use my previous connector... But the new one doesn't have the locks

    Just to clarify, the cable that comes with the iPod is new and does not have locking prongs, but the dock connector itself is exactly the same.
