    I am not completely sure, but i think the usb 2 cable can only be used for windows computers. I just bought a new 30 gb ipod and remember seeing something in the instuction book or on the box about that.

    Edit: I cannot find the phrase saying that you couldn't. Try consulting apple's knowledge base. If you can i think you have to buy a cable from apple for it.
