    Hi guys,

    I managed to get my daughter's speaker dock working with her new Touch 2G, basically by converting the power from Firewire to USB style.

    Saved replacing the unit which she was quite happy with before she changed iPod.

    Have attached an overview of how I did this, hope someone else finds it useful.

    You really know your stuff. That's true hacking!

    Although this probably is of no use to most of us this is a really cool project. Well done!

    Cheers guys,

    I do have a bit of experience as I repair door entry systems for a living however I don't usually have to go to these lengths to carry out repairs!

    If just one person out there finds this useful I will be happy, I spent hours looking for info and there seemed to be very little, hopefully this will cut down the time wasted for others.

    All the best for the coming year,
