iPod classic 160GB: Yes, FireWire Chargers Still Work

A reader named Pablo e-mailed to ask whether the brand-new 160GB iPod classic still works with FireWire charging devices. Yes, it does. So if you have one of those iPod Hi-Fis or an in-car audio system that you’re just not ready to give up, there’s still an option.

This is great news, as I have quite a few accessories that used firewire and I plan on getting the new Classic.

when I plugged my new nano into my old firewire charger it gave an error saying that charger wasn’t supported for the ipod (and didn’t display the charging animation).
