    Hi, this is my first post, i have just got an Ipod touch 2G, and it's my first ipod too, I have and old clock radio that has a USB port for other mp3 players, and an iPod dock, as you may have guessed it uses Firewire charging, so I get the you can't charge with this accesory thing... so, having modded electronics before... I wanna know, has anyone ever modded a dock like this, to enable usb charger, if so, can I have a link please? if not, I for a fact know that the pinout for a USB charger is short the center (data) pins, and get 5V 500ma to the other 2 pins, so, if I gat this voltage, and short the data pins on the dock connector will it enable charging without affecting Playback through the system? or is there something else I must do, If it is do-able, is there a known pinout for the dock connector around? Thanks!!

    PS: I Swear i searched, not only in the forum but on the whole web, and found nothing, pardon me if I missed something!
