    i'm not sure but i'll help is much as i can. basically the ipod av cable is just a standard miniplug to rca (red, yellow, white) cable. so if you have a camcorder that came with one of those....just use that. but to make people think that it wouldnt work apple made the ipod's video come out of the red not the yellow plug. so just put red in the video hole and put the yellow in an audio port. as far as i know the ibook doesnt have a miniplug av port. i think it has mini dv or vga.

    That was very sneaky of them to make the video come out of the red. I am assuming if you buy one from them that it is not this case and the coloring is actually different where the video is coming out of the yellow?

    Oh and the video ipods are compatible with the ibook av cable... but as someone stated earlier you don't need to buy one... just buy a camcorder rca cable and plug the red output in the yellow input...
