I read in the forum that the mini ipod blue and gray have a problem on file transfer. But I have a strange problem, when i transfer music to my ipod ( plug into firewire on my ibook) it move 500Kbits / secound, like usb1.1, but if a move from ipod to my ibook, it is fast!!! ( firewire speed ), i think firmware but, I update and the same. I try my in other mac (G5) and nothing the same. My ibook firewire is good because I have a External Drive. can some one have a idea?
