I have a 3rd gen ipod touch and was building the Another Altoids Charger and its not working but will work with others.

I build the charger and it will charge my 1st gen ipod touch and my 1st gen ipod nano but will not charge my 3rd gen ipod touch, what do i need to do to make it work with my ipod touch 3rd gen??? PLEASE HELP!

 check ladyadas site. ipdsa are finicky about power. specifically, the pull up / pull down resistors on the data lines.

after checking that, if it is still not working, reply.

 I had and LED and a resistor but i was dropping to much voltage across those and i wouldnt get 5v out at the USB. So im left with just a 7805 +5v Rgulator, a 9v and a female usb. I hop e the photos help.

 the problem with that is, in fact the pull-up resistor on the data lines.

look at this page. there is a schematic on the page. look at the schematic to see what you need to connect

I thought the Minty Boost site mentioned problems charging 3rd Gen Ipod?  I would go to Minty Boost Forum and post your query- ton of answers can be gotten there.
