My friend just got a new iPod and gave me his old 10gb one (very generous guy) but just the unit itself. Its the older style (version 1.3 it says) with the menu, play/pause, forward, and back buttons surrounding the center dial thing and not above it. The only port I see besides the headphone jack is the firewire port, so Ill obviously need to pickup a firewire card and cable. Does the brand matter, or will anything work? And what software do I need to sync it? He said something about windows iTunes causing 10gb older models to stop functioning, is he right or can I just use windows iTunes? And do I need a charger? I see apple sells an A/C adaptor on their site, but will it power itself through the firewire? And is there an online manual or something? I have very little idea of how to work it since he lives pretty far away and I never saw him with it. Thanks for any help.
