Anyone knows anything about a voice recorder for 5G????
This is the only thing that is bothering me. I just sold my 4G and all accessories (including my iTalk) and ordered the video iPod. I would have no problem buying a new recorder BUT THERE ISN'T ONE AVAILABLE. What is up with that?

I have a question. I have a 4th gen/40 gb (b&w) dock right now. It appears to have been made in 2003. Would this be compatible with the 5th gen 60 gb?

And what about the 4th gen wall charger?

The 4th Generation wall chargers will work just fine. The dock connector is physically and electronically compatible with the 5th Generation, so as long as the iPod actually fits into the dock it will work with any dock-based accessory.

The only exception to this is accessories that sync via FireWire. You can charge via the FireWire cable on the 5G, but you cannot transfer data using it.

The wall charger will work fine, as again the dock connector is fully compatible for charging. However, the 5G will not fit into the docking space on iPod mini dock and Altec IM mini, as it is a physically larger device.

Works Just like my photo. Can't comment on displaying the song info on the head unit because my head unit only does disc and track numbers :-(

Does anyone know when or if iSkin will release skins for the new G5 Video iPods or if Apple will release tube cases for the G5s?

  1. The top connector has been changed. The accessory/remote connector is no longer present, and therefore any accessories that connect to this will definitely not be compatible.
what was this remote connector? sorry, never really used an ipod before!

So does anyone know if there are compatible voice recorders for the new ipods? I bought the Griffin Italk at the same time as my ipod online and now I see it won't fit...

Ice>Link Plus works with 5G iPod

I have an IceLink plus in my car. Even though the holder doesn't exactly match the new (thinner) shape of my 60GB 5G iPod, it does fit and it works exactly as my old 30GB 3G did. The only thing is the extreme small size of the menu display. Song title display is scaled up to match the new bigger screen size of the iPod, so no complaints about that. No video on screen, but I didn't expect that.

re: bti battery packs. i have the first generation pack and just plugged it into my 5g ipod. it seemed to work. when i plugged it in the ipod came on after a night of sleeping, so i'm assuming that means it works. since i have the first generation bti the pod doesn't fit well into the holster, but i'm thinking i can find 4g holsters on ebay or from bti and be well on my way!
