    Hi Guys,

    I'm thinking about buyin' an 32 gb ipod Touch. At the moment i'm listening on an 3rd Generation 15Gb Ipod which came with an firewire to PowerCord Adapter.

    Is it possible to use the old Ipod-Firewire cable for the touch or do i have to buy an USB to Powercord adapter?

    And another question: 16 or 32gb? ;)

    Thanks for the help
    Florian

    The firewire cord, connected either to the wall brick or a firewire port on a computer, will charge the iPod touch. As I'm sure you know, however, you need a USB cable to change the content on it.

    I have a 8 GB. Big enough for me.

    ok, so charging is possible but uploading content only with an usb-cable.

    good to know.

    Another question: Can I use the touch as an external hard drive?

    Thanks and greetings the centre of europe...

    no, I believe you can not (through iTunes) though there may be a program to do that, but you may have to pay for it.

    And yes, 3rd gen power bricks do work

    ok, I have to use iTunes to upload my music and video stuff. Thats fine.

    But can I use it like a normal drive? My 3rd generation Ipod has the option to run in "DiskMode"....

    thanks

    No DiskMode ala the 3G. I've still kept my 3G for keeping some file backups on.

    I think the iPod touch (and iPhone) are wider then the 3G iPods, so it wouldn't fit in the dock (although if it does, the dock is basically just an extension of the sync cable, so it would work just as well)

    I'm pretty sure a third party developer will, but in the meantime jailbroken iPTs can shuffle files nicely via AFP, FTP, or SSH.

    I kinda wonder if Apple isnt allowing disk mode use on iPhones and touches because they use flash memory... Loading new files all the time would surely decrease the life of the flash memory.
