I recently upgraded from an old Nano to an iTouch. I tried to charge by iTouch with my wall charger (Apple brand purchased with Nano) and it didn't work.

I see there are new wall charger USB adaptors, they look just like mine but smaller. Do I need to buy one of those? Can I only charge my iTouch on the computer?

HP, Windows 2000

    I doubt it - Apple don't make anything called an iTouch - it's called an iPod touch.

    Did you used to call your iPod nano - an iNano?

    It may depend on which Nano but I had to get a new wall charger for my 2nd Gen iPod Touch (or as we say, iTouch) as the old one for my 4th Gen iPod (b/w, no video c. 2003) would not work. Apple store confirmed this.

    Your wise crack comments really do not help me. I think you understand me. My ipod TOUCH will not charge by my wall charger.

    If you are going to criticize, don't respond.

    Can you please tell me what exactly you purchased? I want to make sure I buy the correct item. It seems there are so many different items to choose from!

    Thanks for your very helpful info.

    I recently got the Composite cables to hook up my older video iPod and now my new touch to the TV. I needed to replace the old ones that no longer work. It came with a charger and can of course be used with just the USB cable that came with your iPod. You might consider getting these since you get more than just the charger.

    However if you don't think you'll ever need to hook it up to the TV to watch movies or show off pictures here is the charger you need.

    Regarding the comments on what the touch is called. I get it that it can be a little annoying to see something called by the wrong name but I can honestly say this is the first time I have ever seem a post that is so rude on these discussion groups. I always come to the Apple discussions to get answers because the people here are so nice and extremely helpful and can't believe someone asking an innocent questions got such a rude reply just because of the product name. There was a simple way to answer the question and politely inform of the correct name, why be rude about it?

    I looked at the posts from the person who left the comment about "iTouch". It seems that's all this person does is nag at people to use the right name.

    I came to the discussions because I wanted to hear what real people have to say. I am sure that the Apple rep's are smart about their products, but I want to know what "real" people think. That means more to me than someone who is paid to sell an item.

    This person's comments are childish and completely unnecessary. They must have a pretty perfect world if their biggest concern is whether or not I am calling it an "ipod touch" or an "iTouch".

    I am going to check into the product you suggested. Thanks for taking the time to help me out.

    The thing is, there is a product called the iTouch - however, it's not made by Apple and is, in fact, a cheap knock-off copy (link). If you want to call your iPod touch by the name of an inferior product, then go for it...

    On the other hand, I'm sure you'd find it quite annoying if people routinely got your name wrong, eh saddus?

    That's a good one, saddus! Did you think of that one on your own?

    Leave people alone. Get a hobby, get a job, get a life. Find something better to do than criticize people for what they call their ipods.

    I like my iTouch. I paid for it. I'll call it whatever I want.

    Your on a pretty big roll 'its not called....' who are you? the name police?
    he can call it whatever he wants, You are the one with the problem if all you have to do is sit in a chair and scroll through the messages looking for something to criticise. your looking prettycool there.

    Now, who do we all think has the biggest problem? I wonder...

    Well. I agree. It is not an iTouch. This is one of my biggest pet peeves. Check the forum topic you put this under. What is it called? iPod Touch. not "iTouch".

    Anyway. To answer your question....Apple did something with the 2G iPod Touch that made it not compatable with old charging accessories (stupid i know). I have the same problem. I can't charge mine on my iHome or in my car with an iPod radio plug. I just get the message saying "Charging is not supported with this accessory".

    So i guess you just have to buy a new wall charger that is compatable.
