“Using an iPod with a Wallstreet Powerbook”

MacOS X Hints reports today on an alternative method for using an iPod with a Wallstreet PowerBook. Previous methods required jumping through many hoops, and even then it wouldn’t always work. This new method, however, seems to be a little more fool proof.

“An alternative to this approach is to purchase an external FireWire drive with a powered bus (you still need the PCMCIA FireWire card), and connect your iPod to the extra FireWire port on the drive. Now your iPod is connected to a powered FireWire port. Consider doing this when it’s time to upgrade your internal hard drive.  Just make sure you get a powered FireWire drive.”
