    I've bought a cheap third generation iPod off eBay and need to get it to charge. I know it can sync through USB but can't charge. Only FireWire. What do I need to buy? Confused here...got a MacBook without firewire port

    Thanks

    A firewire wall charger will work, but I imagine they're even less common than 3G iPods!

    Cheers guys. Managed to get a firewire wall adapter and a firewire to 30 pin cable separately on eBay so that should work fine! Thanks!!!
