    Hey guys! I know this is rather pathetic, but I just received my first iPod. Okay, I had a 2nd gen 10gb for a couple months... but this is my first modern iPod :cool:

    I was wondering what you guys considered the must-haves as far as accessories and mods. I currently have a USB data cable. I also have a new aluminum 13" Macbook. In my car I have an FM Transmitter compatible with any MP3 player, works great for the iPod.

    What accessories would you guys recommend? What modifications/hacks can the 5th Gen iPod take to make it more usable/functional?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can install Rockbox on the 5th generation iPods so it can play most of the formats iTunes won't allow (flac, ape, wav, etc).

    You could hand more of the green stuff over to apple and get a packet of ipod socks- one size fits all. They are a tad bit expensive but you get 5 socks (i think) in a packet so you can use them for your other gadgets as well- i use one for each of my ipods and one for my phone as well. Also, although it might seem a little be obvious, why not invest in a good set of headphones?

    The best case, IMO, is the iSkin Evo.

    Download the app, iPodDisk. It launches a virtual disk image, where you can drag and drop any file or folder out of the iPod within the Finder. Truly the best. It just doesn't copy into the iPod. One-way-road.
