    Would a car charger and/or dock connector for the iPod 3G work for the iPod 5G/5.5G

    Of is the 5G/5.5G USB only?

    If so, can you still find accessories (line out cable, car charger, dock mount) for the 5G/5.5G model?

    Thanks!

    If you're talking about the firewire, then it will charge but not sync a newer iPod.

    A 3G iPod charger will charge a 5/5.5G iPod. It will not however work on an iPod Classic or newer model.

    Thanks for the helpful replies.

    So, the summary:

    1) You can charge a 5G/5.5G iPod using any firewire or USB charger.

    2) You can sync a 5G/5.5G iPod only using a USB sync cable.
