I’ve read that a lot of Firewire cards for PCs don’t work with the iPod.  What are some cards that [I]do[/I] work?


For the most part, the hands down winner is the Adaptec 4300.  This card typically always works.  Orangelink cards from OrangeMicro are good as well.  Typically, any generic card with the VIA chipset will work OK.

I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
