Strange cord? Cannot use on windows?

I just ordered a 3rd generation iPod from ebay and when i got it, the cord did not have a usb port, but some other port. It fits my old iBook, but there is no place on my windows. Why is this? I am just wondering for future reference and curiousity, because I actually put my whole library on the mac anyways, but if in the future something goes wrong, is there an adapter for the newer windows computers? I actually did try my other iPods cord (which was a fourth gen. that got stolen) but it didnt do anything to this iPod. Nothing happened. I am just curious really.

The older iPod's including your 3g are using firewire to charge/sync - the usb cable works only for syncing on this model. so charging will always need the firewire cable!

the usability the we know today was presented with the iPod 4g in 2004

It must have come with a firewire cable. Most PC's don't have firewire, but almost all Macs do/have. Here, you can purchase a USB cable to use instead.

I already had that one from my old iPod, and i tried it, and nothing happened with this one.

Might just be the cable, it could be old and broken. Or you could be making an error, what exactly are you doing when you attempt to connect it to the PC?

You can get multiport adapters that have the firewire outlet as long as you have the firewire port on your motherboard you can connect it. There are also aftermarket firewire wall chargers and additionally there are cables still available that have the firewire port for charging and the USB port for syncing. It fixed my problems and that old iPod is humming like new :) good luck

Haha. Thanks. I asked this question months ago, but liked using it on the mac just fine. But I guess just for future reference, that was helpful.
