HOW TO Fix Your iPod FireWire Cable

Firewire-Ipod-Cable Is your iPod’s Firewire cable coming apart at the seams? Several of my iPod cables have started to de-sheath. What about you? The easiest way to fix the dreaded Firewire cable de-coupling is to put a thin layer of Gorilla Glue on the exposed metal part of the FireWire cable being careful not to over-apply Link.

  1. I had the same problem when I bought a used iPod cable. I use a bit of Seal-All and it’s held fine ever since. It’s also the same stuff I’ve used on my iTrip after I decided to see it I could make it transmit a little better.

    It’s by Eclectic Products and comes in a 3/4oz tube for about $2 and gets hard when it dries, not just sticky, works on wood, metal, rubber, glass, plastic and porcelain. I think I got it at one of the national hardware store chains.

    Use a toothpick to apply it.
