I THINK its because it was made before the ipod nano 4th gen and ipod touch so it does no support the system.

Can not get a iPod touch to charge. Is this iPod supported. Please help.


There is a fix for this. Unfortunately, the some ipods will function properly with the exception of charging. You can buy an adapter to fix this. You can find them on ebay. Go to ebay and do a search for "Scosche charging dock adapter" The adapter plugs into your charging dock and then the ipod plugs into it. They usually come in black or white. If you get the same color as your docking unit you wont even see it once its installed. This works...I have one : )

Ipod 4th gen "charging not supported"


It does that to my iPhone; if I want to charge I have to use a separate cable and run the audio into the aux. Defeats the whole purpose of a dock if you ask me, but I guess they never anticipated what they'd have to do to charge the new iPhone batteries back when they designed the pre-G3-phone docks.

Ipod reads: charging not supported


Until recently, iPods could charge by either USB or Firewire. Each has a different power requirement. Many third-party docks and chargers power the dock connect with electricity that meets the Firewire spec, not the USB one. The newer iPods and the iPhone only can charge by USB. Thus if you use a firewire based charger, you get the "not supported" note. I thinkthat's what is happening to you.
