My G3 iBook has only Firewire and (as I understand it) USB 1.1 ports. I am concerned that the current iPod and iPod mini both require USB 2.0 or firewire according to the system requirements. Am I correct that Apple no longer supplies a firewire cable as part of the standard package? If so, would it be possible for me to use the bundled USB cable with my USB 1.1 Macintosh, or will I have to fork out extra dosh for the firewire cable? I realise that transferring over USB 1.1 would be painfully slow but, because I'm planning on replacing my Macintosh in the next few months, I'm quite happy to put up with slow transfers in the meantime. If I would need to buy extra accessories to get a new iPod to work with my current Mac, then I would probably rather wait until I get a new Mac before I go ahead and buy a new iPod. Any advice would be appreciated.
