    Heya.

    What has your experience been with third party cables, and in particular, has anyone used digipower cables? A friend of mine says she bought one and it wrecked her battery. (it was an MGear cable).

    I'm looking at
    DIGIPOWER FIRE WIRE CABLE IW-01
    and I want to make sure it is compatible with the new iPod touches,
    (Yes.. I realize that the prong is firewire..) and that it won't wreck my batt.

    Can anyone chime in on which off brand cords to avoid and which ones are okay?

    FireWire is not supported anymore.... You can charge the touch but you can't sync, I have an old FireWire iPod and the cable fits into the touch but doesn't work as I stated above. The cable I have is an official Apple cable.

    3rd party cables should be fine, but I would reccomend finding an Apple one cheap, and I would stick with USB too.
