It there any way to use USB 1.1 with the iPOD. If so, can someone post instructions.

step 1. plug it in
step 2. transfer songs just like you would if you were using usb 2
step 3. wait until your songs finish transferring or your order for a pci usb 2 card over the internet is delivered. which ever comes first.

i got 1500 songs transfered via ghetto usb in about 1-2 hours.
it's not too bad.

You might need to check for new drivers, or search for the issue online (find an iTunes forum, perchance). My boyfriend had the same problem, but I can't remember what he did to fix it. ?

i use USB 1.1 and it works fine.

The answer is that USB1.1 WILL work, but it will not transfer as fast as USB 2.0 or Firewire.

I also feel like the detection of the iPod is very slow also. Also, if you only transfer 10-20 songs each time, it's not a big deal, but if you are going to do 100 each time, you might want to upgrade to a USB2/Firewire card.

the apple website has a great support section.
