iPod Question - Mac Applications & Software

I have a plain old Windows PC. It's a few years old, and has a regular old USB port. Will the iPod work with this machine? I hear them talking about Firewire and USB 2.0... what is the difference between USB 2.0 and my USB? How do I get a USB 2.0 port? Thanks!...

    USB 2.0 and my USB? How do I get a USB 2.0 port?

    Not without a port added, no.
     

    USB 2.0 is a newer, faster standard. USB 1.1 devices will work with a
    USB 2.0 port, but not the other way around. With a $20 adapter cable,
    the iPod will acts as a USB 2.0 device. (With the included cable, it's
    a Firewire device.)

    If your PC has card slots, you can add either a FireWire or USB 2.0
    port via a card for around $30 or so. (There are also cards that will
    add both.) I'd recommend FireWire (IEEE 1394), if you're going to buy
    anything.

    the new ipods can do usb 2. it theoretically should work on a usb 1
    port and it will take many hours to update the ipod with music.

    you really want to add firewire to use the ipod.

    they work the other way around too, but at usb1 speeds.
     

    get a combo card. sure, firewire is better but there are a lot of usb2
    devices. cover both.

    That's not correct. A high speed USB device must work when plugged into
    a USB 1.1 port. It does however, only have to work to the extent that
    it tells the host that it can't do anything. An iPod will function at
    least as a Mass Storage device when plugged into a 1.1 port. Its much
    slower than when its plugged into a high speed port though. I wouldn't
    fancy downloading 15GB at that speed.
