Unfortunately the headphone jack to my IPT1G is broken and since there aren't external speakers build into this model, I have no method of listening to music. I'm also without a warranty through Apple. I think many people have this problem too, so I decided to post my quick, under $20 solution that is tested and works with the iPod Touch 1G, iPod Nano 4G, and I would imagine that it would work with any iPod that has a dock connector. Okay so here's what you need to get/buy, and No, we are not opening the ipod, this is an EXTERNAL fix: 1) A 3.5mm AV Adapter made for dock adapters on iPods I used this one from Deal Extreme Please Register or Log in to view images It can be found here 2) A 3.5mm Volume Control for headphones Please Register or Log in to view images This can be found here After obtaining these parts, just plug the dock connector into the ipod and the the volume control into the dock connector. If your ipod touch (1g) is running 3.0 software the only way you can control volume is through the volume control cable. I have not tried this on an ipod touch 2g, but it works GREAT on the ipod touch 1g. That's it! These were the EXACT parts I'm using. Any questions or problems, PM me. I hope this helps someone because it took me forever to figure out what I was going to do to fix this problem on my iPod.
