Hi, When i connect my iPod (3rd generation which is completely brand new as i had it replaced by apple) by the firewire cable, it charges it, however it does not recognise it at all. It does not show up in 'My Computer' or iTunes. I have 3 PC's at home and my iPod is not recognised at all. Before i doubted that it could be my firewire cable because it charged my iPod however after testing this on all 3 computers i think it might be it. Please reply to verify if i am correct and if so, any tips on how to repair the cable without buying a new one. Many Thanks.
