How can I connect the first generation ipod to macbook air?

How can I connect the first generation ipod to macbook air or macbook pro? Using an adapter?

macbook air
The only theoretical solution is an USB ExpressCard adapter and FireWire ExpressCard. I don't know if anyone's actually attempted it.
macbook pro
A FireWire 400 to 800 cable or adapter, also known as 6 pin to 9 pin.

  • How can I upgrade the hard drive in my MacBook Air early 2014 11"?

    i have a macbook air with a 128gb ssd drive and want to install a larger drive. where can I buy the drive from and how do I install it?

    At the present time there are no third party PCIe SSDs available.  Until some are produced for sale, the only alternative is to purchase a MBA with larger storage.

    How can I increase the storage capacity of my macbook air?

    Oh I know you were implying archival backup software.  I was just throwing in the "on the cheap"  archive option.
    Back when I worked at a large unnamed institution things got archived to the power of 10 at multiple locations, the mere notion of "losing anything" was an impossibility short of a black hole opening up on earth. Even the archival managers thought it was insane redundancy, but thats the way it was.
    I work off that same premise myself. I cant lose 20+ years of work.
    I coined this term about 11 years ago.
    Decentralized Omnipresent Data (D.O.D.)
    Backing up data to:
    Multiple HD in multiple locations
    On multiple servers on multiple continents, private and public websites, anonymous data farms. (very easy actually)
    Burned onto archival optical and magnetic storage
    Have unclassified data possessed by multiple people in multiples places.
    When your data becomes both everywhere and nowhere, accessible to all, destructible by none, cannot be collected together or permanently retrieved under any circumstances, you have Decentralized Omnipresent Data (D.O.D.) protection rivaling that of large governments.

    How do I connect my 2nd generation Ipod to a Firewire 800 port on a new laptop? It no longer holds a charge and it doesn't power up with the newer generation USB cable. The only way I can sync my Itunes library onto this Ipod is when it is powered and connected simultaneously. Pls help.

    Try here:
    iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    If not successful then time for an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

  • I have the first generation ipod shuffle. I was wandering if apple can still fix them.

    I have the first generation ipod shuffle. I was wandering if apple can still fix this ipod. please let me know.

    Considering the cost for a new current gen shuffle, I don't think it will be an economical repair.  That USB connector is connected to a very thin ribbon cable that runs up the shuffle inside the case.  If its USB connector came off and is lost, that means the ribbon cable got torn off.  So the shuffle will need to be disassembled and a new part (USB connector with its ribbon cable) installed.  And that's significant labor.
    However, if you are good at fixing small things

    I've done it before.  You'll need to acquire a broken iPod shuffle 1st gen, but one that has a working USB connector.  That's the most common failure for these iPods, so make sure it is described as being recognized by the computer/iTunes or something like, "It works but the battery is dead."

  • I have two iPods, one from the fourth generation and another one that must be from the first generation iPod nano. Can I trade them both in?

    I have two iPods, one IPod touch from the fourth generation and another one that must be from the first generation iPod nano. Can I trade them both in?
    The Fourth generation- 16GB
    First generation-4GB

    Apple does not have a "trade in" program for iPods, other than the recycling program that gives you a 10% discount on a new iPod (at an Apple Retail Store).

    There are some third-party (non-Apple) companies that provide compensation for old iPods.  You can also sell them yourself on eBay.

  • Can I connect my 3rd generation iPod shuffle to external speakers

    Can I connect my 3rd generation IPod shuffle to external speakers? When I plug it into an external speaker, it stops playing and I don't hear any music. The controls eg. Volume, play etc is on the earplug cord. Thanks

    Not for more than 10% off the price of a new one. You're better off selling it to a third-party.

    - A MiFi or similar. They are credit-card size devices that act a wifi hotspot and then connect to a cellulare network
    - Use a smart phone that can act as a wifi hotspot to share it s cellular connection. An iPhone will also do that via bluetooth. You need to purchase a tethering plan .

    Hi guys, recently had the same issue. You require an older version of Airport Utility to configure the older Airport Express. It can be found here.

  • How can I connect the iTunes in my iPad (now with iOS7) to my Power PC Mac?

    How can I connect the iTunes in my iPad (now with iOS7) to my Power PC Mac?

    Nope, the top OS version for the IBM processor is 10.5.8, and under that version I can not update the iTunes further than the 10.6.3 :-(
    But that means the brand leaves a large chunch os costumers with still perfectly operating computers out of the loop on purpose, so to force us to upgrade computer?
    Not fair at all, both are legitimate Apple products, they should sync no matter what! The sad thing is theu used to, before I migrated to iOS7 on the iPad, move that I now regret...
