    Just got ipod touch 3g. It will charge from my laptop but does not charge on my bose sounddock. Msg appears 'charging not supported on this accessory'. My classic charges fine on it, is this a general issue with 3g or a specific problem with mine.
    Thanks.

    It might be a general problem, the iPod Touch 2Gen and 3rd Gen are weird in a way. My brother has the 1st Gen and he can plug that thing into about anything that will accept the USB and it charges it no problems, but I've owned the 2nd Gen and now the 3rd Gen and I've ran into problems with docks designed to charge iPod's of all models.

    I'd say it's probably just your you Bose Dock, because the Click Wheel is less advanced, most hardwares can pick up on it and charge it. I think your iPod Touch is fine, as long as you can get it charged somewhere, your in business.

    gunot2100 :and its also irritating when a jacka$$ like you is allowed to operate a keyboard, seeing its my first time on the forum, it would be difficult to see the other million posts. Maybe you should get a life instead of jacking off in front of the computer all day.

    I'm sure there will be docks compatible(Charging) with the 3G soon.

    Yeah, but I don't want to have to buy a brand new dock when mine plays music fine. just doesn't charge. But really, even a USB charger that simply plugs into a wall outlet to charge doesn't even work. I wonder if it is a change in hardware/software and if we can circumvent it.

    Really can't change it tbh. Just get an outlet charger for your iPod in the meantime.
