The 3G iPod has the newest 2.3 firmware and I also did a complete restore. I created a BMW1 and BMW2 playlists, plugged it in, and it doesn't even look like it's getting charged. It does say "BMW" on the screen, and "Ok to disconnect". Presets 3 through 5 say "no disk", 1 and 2 do nothing. Sometimes I do get audio but can't change songs or select a playlist.

The 3G iPod only charges over Firewire, so I think it's strange that ONLY my devices that can charge over USB are working in the BMW, the original iPhone and 3GS included.

It still makes me wonder if this is a newer version of the ipod adapter that only works with USB charging devices.
