have a 15GB 1st gen ipod. it came with a firewire attachment. BUT....i can only sync it using a usb attachment. BUT...the battery doesnt last long enough to sync the thing, and crashes pretty easily. When i go to restore the whole thing using iTunes, it says it can only format using the firewire....which when hooked up to, doesnt recognize the ipod via itunes.

any suggestions. thinking along the lines of needing to install the older software.
