iPod 32GB touch and FM radio does not work ????

Ok so I just upgraded to the 32GB touch (love it) and when I try to connect the radio I bought from Apple for my 30GB 5G video does not work on the Touch? it tells me "this accessory does not work on the Touch, any ideas why can I make it work ?

thanks

You can't. Not all "classic ipod" accessories work with the touch. It's not your traditional ipod, it's a totally new operating system.

Yeah, but streaming through the internet burns the battery down double-quick. You'd be lucky to get 3-4 hours out of it streaming...



Found on a Firewire cable - If you need to detain a burglar until the authorities arrive, this FireWire cable can render approximately three perpetrators immobile when properly hog-tied.

That's not even the point. Almost every single DAP has a FM tuner built in.

I thought it was ridiculous they didn't back port the freakin $50-$60 FM Tuner for the iPod Touch..the thing is as much as a iPod Shuffle is now and doesn't even work.

Would have not only gave the great crappy FM Reception it gets, but it'd also take care of my biggest gripe of the iPod Touch..NO BUTTONS.
