    ipod port to 3.5mm adapter

    So, my wifes ipod finally bit the dust and my household is Apple free. But, I have several accessories that have only the ipod port. Is there an adapter that can convert that to a normal jack(3.5mm) or usb? Google has failed me on this one.

    Might be able to work out the pin outs and convert one end to USB.

    Never again. Actually, the last one was a present as were two of the accessories. Regardless, there will be no Apple products purchased with my money in this house.

    Re: ipod port to 3.5mm adapter

    And. The headphone jack is a standard audio jack just get a stereo male to male audio cable and TADA sound. You only need the 30 pin connector to charge. No need to get all anti-apple.. Learn about your product (a damn good one at that) and enjoy it.

    That is useful. I miss read your post so my suggestions are not of much value. Don't most of the accessories have a 3.5 jack on them?

    Way to lay down the rules, brother! We need more people like you that will make the tough household decisions, like what types of personal music devises people will use. I say up crank up the heat. Set strict curfews, even for your wife. Lay out their uniforms for them every night. Only eat the foods you deem worthy enough to dare touch the human palate.

    Man, where do you jerks come from?

    I'm pretty sure he's got every right to control where his own money goes. I disagree with his assessment, but if that's how he feels, he has more than a right to do that.
