    Apple changed the charging protocol on the iPod Touch 2G (and any of the newer generation devices) from Firewire to USB 2.0. None of the old accessories that were based on the Firewire will no longer charge the newer devices.

    There are third party hardware adapters that will convert the iPod Firewire chargers for use with the new USB 2.0 protocol.
