Mi4004 doesnt charge iPod Touch

"Charging is not supported with this accessory": That's what display on my iPod when I connect my iPod Touch to my iWake Mi4004.In my manual, it says "Charging: When the iPod is inserted into the dock, whether the Mi4004 is on or off, the iPod battery will charge until it is full."
My iPod is connected properly...what now?

    Also with my new nano, what a disappointment...

    We have the same exact problem. Funny thing is that we have a 2 year or so older model that charges it just fine. We even bought another new one just to be sure that it wasn't a lemon. Seems to be a problem with the model.

SOURCE: I have the memorex Mi4004 and it won't charge

Hi, I do have the solution, the Memorex Mi400 clock radio does not itself support charging of the iPod touch. last model supported was the iPod video 5g. There may be a way around this however, I have an iPod sound system that doesn't support charging either-however it has a ipod charging port on the back-if I plug in my iPod touch's charger there it charges, so I would look on the back of your clock radio to see if there is a connector that looks like the one on the bottom of your iPod touch. Plug charger in there and you'll be good to go. I hope this was helpful and thanks for choosing FixYa-good luck, Prodzilla.

Doesnt charge/play my ipod touch


The sbd8000 does not charge the newer ipods.... The following is from the Philips website...
The SBD6000 and SBD8000 do not support newer generation iPods.
On newer generation iPods, different electrical contacts for the charging process are being used. The SBD8000 does not support this.

"...
Important Note: iPods released since Sept 2008 (e.g. Touch 2nd Gen, 4th Gen iPod Nano and iPod Classic 120 Gigabyte, iPhone 3g and onwards) have an updated dock connector that means older revisions of speaker dock may not be able to charge these newer models of iPod/iPhone. Older docks should play music from these newer models with no problem.
The problem with charging is due to Apple removing support for 12v (firewire) charging on these new models of iPod/iPhone. Only 5v (USB) charging is supported on these new models.

Ipod doesnt work


I think I know just the problem. The connection cord that came with the wall outlet charger can only be used for charging. You have to have the original apple cord in order for the computer to recognize it.


I had the same problem.

"Charging not supported by this accessory"


The iPod 2nd Gen changed how it charges and all those devices that once charged your older iPod, will no longer charge this one unless you get the adapter which is at the apple store and I have seen it at walmart for about $30. that device converts the power for you so it will charge. my adapter works perfectly.

Won't charge on Bose SoundDock


You're not doing anything wrong. Newer iPods and the iPhone require accessories that were specifically designed for them. For example, the iPod interface in my car will not charge my iPhone, however, I can still play music through it.

The only solution is to: 1: Buy a SoundDock II or 2: Charge your ipod seperately.

Will not charge a ipod touch 2


If you're willing to spend $40, there's an adapter available from Scosche Accessories. It comes in both black and white and they say it will convert any docking device to the new charging format. (The problem is that Apple has discontinued charging via the FireWire pin - which virtually all accessories - even including Bose - have used up to now. All the 2nd Generation stuff now uses direct USB charging, not FireWire.

Check out the convertor at:

Itouch charging


Hi there,

Some speaker systems which are only compatible for charging the ipod nanos and classics do not work with the iPod Touch and the iPhone, the internals are slighly different from one another which will not allow that speaker system to charge your iTouch.

To play & Charge your touch, i suggest getting a speaker system that supports the iPod touch platform.

Hope this helps ?!
