A real dumb question about this cable. A little background first to explain. I got my 3rd Gen 30G ipod on ebay and absolutely love it. It came with no instructions but did come with the AC charger, the car charger, and the Firewire + USB combo cable.

My question is, how to properly use this cable. I have been uploading music to the ipod with the Firewire port alone. Should I just permanately hook these cable to the back of my computer? (I have ports on the front of my computer as well.)

Just a beginner lookin' for a little guidance.

the usb + firewire cable is for people who do not have firewire ports on their computer, as the 3g cannot charge via usb, it was designd so you sync with usb and charge with the firewire cable plugged into the wall adapder. as you have firewire it is not really nessesary, although i think usb2 is a little faster than firewire but not too much, so it shouldnt really make a difference
