Found an iPod Classic in the e-recycle bin at work, and lo and behold, it works just fine! So now I want a dock for it. Of course, I'm having a surprisingly hard time finding one at a decent price (like $20 shipped) since the old 30-pin connector has been obsolete for awhile. The only dock I have is for the original 60GB iPod Photo, so the indentation for the iPod is just way too big.
If you have one sitting around that you're not using, email me (shif at gmail). Looking to pay around $20 shipped to 98027.
