Re: My 30gb iPod video died last night
my 30gig iPod video supports USB 2.0 only for data transfer, but just for kicks, I plugged my firewire cable into it and voila, it woke up!!
But it did say "this iPod does not support data transfer via Firewire"
This tells me that either my USB 2.0 cable is bad or the power to my USB ports is screwed up. When I plug the USB cable into my computer and plug it into my ipod, my mouse and keyboard which is in USB port 1, goes dead. I think they are sharing the same power source and the load of two items on it screws things up.
I think i'd rather have a dead iPod than a dead Mac.
I'll keep ya'll posted.
