2010-01-30 00:51:43rev. 5CORRECTLooks good but if you make a home made cable you will want to plug it in the ipod first then the computer as to not short out V+ and Gnd.. as someone else stated because the 4th pin is wired to V+ this means the Ipod case Floats at 5V!!!!! so don't let it touch anything while plugged in .APPROVED
