    I am having problems getting my Ipod Touch to connect to either one of my vehicles stereos (via Ipod cable), when all of my other ipods do. I connect them to the head units via the ipod cables availible for the head unit, but the stereos won't play ANYTHING off the touch. I know it's not a hardware problem (in the car radio) but how come all my other ipods work and now not the touch... Has anyone else had this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

    Try using a double ended 3.5m jack it will deff. work.
    you can get them anywhere. Like future shop or online, there anywhere from $1 to $20 depending on where you get it from. The cheapst is from the 1$ store.
    But I guess it will only work if you have a front Aux line in on your car stereo.

    Could just be the differences in technologies. My Touch doesn't work with my speaker I have for my nano and classic.

    Is the stereo unit one where you control the iPod through the stereo's controls or through the iPod? If the former, it won't work because the iPod can't be read in disk mode, and therefore can not be accessed by things like that. If the later, check this list to see if it is compatible: http://www.ifans.com/wiki/index.php?title=IPod_touch_Accessories

Thanks for all ya'lls help.
