Firewire cable hard to pull out.

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I bought my iPod in December and ever since it's been kinda hard to pull the firewire cable end off the player. At first I just thought that was normal.

Now I've got a PowerBook and the cable gets kinda stuck in the Firewire port (have trouble pulling it out). I again, thought all this was normal until a couple of weeks ago when a friend of mine plugged his Firewire cable inside my Powerbook's firewire port and it slid in and out easily.

Anyone else have hard-to-get-out Firewire cables? It works and all, but I just wish it was easier to get it in and out. Does it loosen up with time?

    mine is a bit tough sometimes. i thought they all were like that. similarly, i have an old imac keyboard, and its usb ports are a little small (i think), because i tried plugging in an evil (=microsoft) optical mouse, and i had to forcefully jam it in. i don't think time will fix it though cause I've had this 'pod for like months and months.

    Oh well. That kinda sucks that some of us get "tighter" firewire cables. No biggie, it still works perfectly.
