BTW, MozMan68, my iPod uses USB, as I think most or all do. Some may also use Firewire. The BB AC adapter is set up to take a regular USB cable, but will also take the iPod USB cable, since it has a regular USB connection at one end, and the iPod specific connection at the other end.
True for G4 or later iPods, but any of the previous versions will not charge with the USB cable which is why pre-G4 ipods HAVE to use the supplied charger (which only works with the fire wire cord) or have a fire wire connection to charge. Considering that the USB chargeable iPods have only been available since May?? of 2004, there alot of iPod users out there that cannot charge with their USB cable.
