OK, plugging my 5th generation iPod into the Firewire port of my old eMac, I found out the hard way that Apple have decided to ditch such support. That leaves me with a USB 1.1 port. 30 minutes in, only 1.5 gb have filled up, another 26 to go. Hmm. I know it's a long shot, but is there any way to get round this? Would some sort of adapter fool the iPod? It seems silly to upgrade a computer to meet the needs of an iPod.
