The dock connector port allows the iPod (with Dock Connector) to be connected to different devices.

There are two Apple-branded cables that use this connector. When disconnecting any of these cables, press in on the sides of the dock connector to release.

By using the iPod Dock Connector to FireWire Cable you can connect the iPod (with Dock Connector) to a computer with a FireWire port. Or, you can use the cable to connect this computer to the iPod Dock.




Figure 2 iPod Dock Connector to FireWire Cable

By using the iPod Dock Connector to FireWire and USB 2.0 Cable you can connect the iPod (with Dock Connector) or an iPod Dock to a computer with a USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 port and also connect iPod to power. Since USB does not supply power to iPod, it is important to plug the FireWire connector into the iPod AC Adapter.

Notes

  1. The iPod (with Dock Connector) cannot use the 6-pin to 6-pin FireWire cable that came with previous iPod models.
  2. Syncing with USB (certain versions of Windows-only) requires optional iPod Dock Connector to FireWire and USB 2.0 Cable and iPod Software Upate 2.0.1 or later. See technical document 60971, "iPod: System Requirements" for more information.
  3. Connecting the USB and FireWire connectors into your computer simultaneously can cause the computer and/or the iPod to behave erratically or stop responding.
