iPod Classic - 2nd Gen (2002) - Cases / Firewire to USB converter


I was lucky enough to win this classic during an auction and so far absolutely no issues at all.


Quick questions: Does anyone have a source for good cases for the 2nd Gen Classic and also it's been years since I've had firewire... I'm assuming the standard Firewire to USB converters won't present an issue?
