Try using a small brush, like a tooth brush, to remove any debris from the iPod touch or the dock.
Does the dock have the "Made for iPod" logo? If it doesn't, it might be trying to charge the iPod via firewire.
+"iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch (2nd generation) do not support FireWire and will not charge from any FireWire-based power source. If you connect either of these devices to a FireWire-based charger or accessory"+

Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2009 12:33 PM (in response to peterfreedom)Same problem--the Altec Lansing radio charges my old iPod Touch but not my wife's new one.
I am sure it said iPod compatible or I would not have bought it in the first place. Maybe Altec Lansing will have a fix...Powerbook, Mac OS X (10.4.4)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2009 4:04 PM (in response to peterfreedom)According to this: http://www.alteclansing.com/index.php?file=northproduct_detail&iproductid=m602 the Altec Lansing M602 is not compatible with the new iPod Touch 2nd generation.
As mentioned by Jason L. in his post above, the iPod Touch 2nd generation has will not charge from firewire based chargers. The dock connector has changed and those older charger docks that used the firewire pins in the dock connector will not charge these newer iPods. See this: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1476
You can get an adapter that will allow your older dock to work: http://store.apple.com/us/product/TV683ZM/A?fnode=MTY1NDA4NA&mco=ODAwNTQ2MA&p=1& s=topSellers24" iMac 2.8GHz Intel Core Duo, Mac OS X (10.6), iPhone 3GS - 6 iPods
