I have just bought myself an ipod only to find that I don't have the right port to connect it to my PC. I need a high power usb port or a 6 pin firewire 400 port (IEEE 1394). My questions are, which should I go for, where would I get it from and is it easy to fit. Hope someone out there can help.

I would go for usb - much more devices use this, but you can have both click here or just the usb click here or click here

what operataing system do you have on your pc? only 98se and later I think supports usb properly

for the above you will need a spare pci slot

I have XP so should be OK. Cheers

go for firewire, it's much much faster and near enough the same price.

I have read on forums that there is virtually no speed difference between firewire & usb 2
