    I have a Non-Apple iPod Touch Charger and a Non-Apple iPod Touch Dock. I recently sold my iPod Touch Gen 1 to a friend to buy my new Touch, and I brought it home and plugged it into my PC to charge. It charged to about 80% and then I took it to my room and put it on my dock. A warning symbol came up (it looks like the topic's icon) and it said that "charging is not supported with this accessory". Then I plugged it into my wall charger and it displayed the same thing.
    I think apple has not allowed this new device to use anything but Apple accessories, so be warned - those of you who have older docks... they wont work on this new iPod Touch 2G.
    Hopefully this is fixable via Jailbreak, and hopefully someone will figure it out.

    It's not a software problem it's hardware. Apple removed the ability to charge through firewire. Now it's only through USB. My touch 2g won’t charge in my Scion xA anymore. It's all a scam to make use buy all new equipment. Now I'm stuck buying one of theses,http://scosche.com/products/productID/1667

    Dude, that sucks, luckily for me, I bought my dock on September 2nd, so I could return it. The charger was out of warranty, but It only cost me 3 dollars so thats not a big deal.
