Question about JBL On Stage II with Remote Remote Control for iPod and MP3 Players, Black (086792279251)
Error message when touch 2 is docked "charging is not supported with this accessory" Package says charges all Ipod models. except Ipod shuffle.
I have the 2G touch, and got the error message. But now have plugged my usb charger (bought on ebay for under £10) into the back using the usb cable which came with the iPod Touch. Its a bit of a pain havin 2 plugs in the back of the JBL, makin it a bit more bulky, annoying since its most impressive for it's lack of size.

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:

Thank you, Nedrlndr, I love you.
Just to keep both of these great products in one thread, here's a link to a male to female extension cable for iPods:

I want to buy an iPod touch G2, but the one my best friend has won't charge on my car stereo. I came to FixYa to find the problem and found out from Nedrlndr that the G2's use a different pin to charge and suggested a solution from Schosche. I clicked the link, scanned the site and found an in-line adapter for car stereos for only $30. Thanks Nedrlndr!

Hi - I had same problem - iPod Touch 2G and JBL Onstage. Was getting "charging not supported on this device" message. As soon as I connected the Onstage to computer (mac) via usb cable, all works perfectly, charges, speakers work and syncs with itunes etc.... Hope this helps

The Scosche passPORT Homedock does NOT work with the original JBL OnStage II (the older white one with remote) because the Scosche is too wide to fit down into the Onstage II. You will need an extender cable like the one linked by LorraineKP. You plug the iPod into the Scosche, then use the extender cable between the Scosche and the OnStage. Not very elegant but should work (I'm shopping for an extender cable now).
The Onstage II I'm talking about:

This compatibility issue is caused by the same change with the Apple
Dock Connecter introduced with the iPhone 3G. Inside the iPod / iPhone
Dock Connecter are 30 metal pins. Previous iPods and iPhones allowed
for charging either over pins reserved for the USB connection or pins reserved for the obsolete Firewire connection.
While Apple apparently announced this upcoming change to manufactures of “Made for iPod” accessories back in 2005, Apple only formerly discontinued Firewire charging support with the most recent iPods. New iPods and iPhones can only charge via the USB pin.
As such, there is no way that a software update can fix this issue in the future; this is truly a modification in iPod hardware.

Get one of these to sole your problem. ipod change their charging circuit I found one at Walmart in the ipod accessories section. Its called the Passport home dock adapter.
- 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

Griffin also offers an adapter to remedy this concern. I haven't used it but here's a link.
