my gf just got me the new 2g ipod touch and i was wondering if the ipod cable plays the songs off the ipod as well as charges it. i plugged it into my mom's mercedes S550 and it played the songs but did not charge the ipod. can anybody help me out? thanx
I believe there are two different cables, one of which supplies power via the old Firewire pinout, which the new iPods don't support, and one which supplies power via the USB pinout, which will charge a new iPod. I'm pretty sure I saw posts about that on this forum, although it may have been on Audiworld. If you search, you should be able to find the posts, which should reference the specific part number for the cable you need.
