    Does the iPod say "charging is not supported with this accessory" or does it not pick it up at all?

    There are two types of charging typically for iPod (and other USB devices for that matter), for the iPods they are 5 Volts on pin 23 of the 30 pin iPod connector and and on 12 Volts on pins 19 and 20. Chances are you just have the wrong kind of adapter putting out the wrong voltage. If it's a general USB charger, try a different iPod cord. If it's one that is made for an iPod to plug into and that's it, get a new charger as it doesn't support your iPod.
