    I just got my Touch today - upgraded from the Classic. Right now it's not feeling like much of an upgrade. Hopefully, it's just newbie frustration.

    I never use headphones with my iPod. I always use external speakers. They connect directly to the iPod via the dock connector (hope that's the right term

    ).

    I've got Logitech speakers with built-in batteries which I use most of the time. I also have the iHome clock radio.

    Well, I can't get sound from the Touch to come out either device! It's only coming out through that lousy internal speaker.

    I've gone into settings, but there doesn't seem to be a way to turn off the internal speakers. How do I turn off the lousy internal speaker & use my real ones?

    Thanks!

    Turn the volume up? Try that -_-

    The iDock may require you to push the power button to get your iPod to work with the iDock, that's what mine needs.

    Hit play/pause on the dock connector with the iPod plugged in. Thats what I have to do on my iHome.

    Thanks! Hitting play/pause worked with the iHome clock radio!

    The Logitech speakers don't have a play/pause button.

    Haven't been able to get them to work. I know the speakers came with a remote that had play/pause, but they're at least two years old & I've never used the remote. So, I have no idea where it is.

    I feel better knowing I don't have to use headphones! Still, hope I can figure out how to get the Logitech's working. They're really nice portable speakers.

    Glad I could help with the iHome. But the Logitech speakers, do they plug in via the headphone jack or the dock connector?

    The Logitech uses the dock connector. But, it could connect via an auxiliary cable/headphone jack. So, I guess that's an option.

    I did find the Logitech remote in a desk drawer, but it doesn't work anymore. The issue w/the remote has nothing to do with the Touch - doesn't work w/the Classic anymore either. (Tried changing the battery.

    The reason it doesn't work with the Logitech is due to compatibility issues.

    Have it working on the Logitech! Even with the Touch dock adapter in place it evidently wasn't fitting quite right. (There was occasional sound through the speakers - for just a second at a time.)

    So, I experimented. Discovered that by putting a little piece of balled-up paper behind the iPod the sound came out through the speakers beautifully. It's just enough to nudge the iPod forward a tiny bit.

    These speakers get wonderful sound for their size & the built-in rechargeable battery is great. Even though they're old by techie standards, the speakers still hold a charge for hours of play. So, I'm thrilled they're working.

    Now, on to exploring the Touch & trying some apps. Thanks again for the help!
