    new ipod not charging with adapter. anybody get this message

    Note: iPod nano (4th generation) does not support FireWire and will not charge from any FireWire-based power source. If you connect an iPod nano (4th generation) to a FireWire-based charger or accessory, you will receive the "Charging is not supported with this accessory" screen below:

    I ran into this same issue when I picked up an iPod Touch for my daughter. All our docking stations and car accessories were incompatible. I found this place for adapters.

    the audio works but no charging. Straight from apple customers service all the new gen ipod's and i phone etc. will only support charging on usb based systems firewire out. so my bose, jbl moomba and suburban connections will have to change or carry around a usb car charge as well . I love apple products but this change is ridiculous.

    The aftermarket people are catching up. I picked up a Belkin car adapter that will charge both old and new. The adapters in the link I posted above also supposed to make the old compatible with the new:

    - this accessory supports charging for the iPhone 3G, iPod touch (Gen 2) and iPod nano (Gen4) with most iPod docking stations
    - Snaps into any iPod universal dock and accepts universal dock adapters
    - Includes dock adapter for BOSE SoundDock I units.

    JV I have the same problem with the 4th gen. They did this just to screw with us. But as said Belkin has come out with something to work with them.

    A buddy has the same issue on his boat. Replaced a stolen ipod with a new one and now it won't charge. It seems Apple replace the 12v Firewire technology with 5v USB a couple years ago. Do a search using "ipod 12v to 5v converter" and you'll find all kinds of them. P.I.E., Peripheral, Scosche & Vais are just a few.
