A standard USB cable will give you direct access to the files on the iPod/iPhone. Basically, the iPod/iPhone looks to the iDrive system as if it was a memory storage device (the same as a USB memory stick). If you use the Y cable, the little 'black' box in the cable converts the iDrive control commands sent via the USB interface into serial data to control the iPod/iPhone.
