    I have that exact one and it works great. I have an old iPod shuffle which uses a USB connection so I don't know about your iPod but the adapter has worked for just about everything else.

    It cost me something like $10 USD so it's not much of a financial lost if it doesn't work. You'll need it for all your other Firewire 400 devices so you might as well get it.

    You could opt to forgo the adaptor and just get a FW400 to FW800 cable. Here's an example of one available from Monoprice.

    I don't think the iPods have Firewire 400 ports which is what the OP is concerned about.

    Well it will work for the 1st gen one (and 2nd gen iPods) but not ones with dock connectors. Monoprice does not sell the cable he needs from what I can see.
