I just bought an 80Gig iPod classic to replace an old iPod that finally bit the dust. As you know, the new iPod comes with a USB cable that connects to the dock connection slot on the bottom. I didn't buy the USB power adapter as yet.
Here's the question: can I use the old power adapter and connecting cord from the old iPod? It has a similar dock connector, but it goes to a Firewire connector on the other end which then plugs into the AC power block. The AC power adapter has the following written on it: "Apple iPod Power Adapter. Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China. Model No. A1003. AC INPUT 0.4A Max. PSCV120101A © 2001." Also: "Input: AC 100-240V. 50/60 Hz 26-38VA, Output: 12V 1.0A"
So...is the dock connector on the old cable compatible? is the old power adapter compatible? How about the old dock?
