    in 3.0 you have to have your headphones plugged in or else the volume scrubber doesn't show up.

    Not true, 2nd gen does not require headphones, I have had same issue daily. Normally switch off then back on and all is ok.

    That is because the second generation iPod touch has a built-in speaker.

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    I wondered how the sound was coming out of the magic box without headphones

    Sorry, I misread your post at first. I don't know why the volume control would not appear even with headphones plugged in. Perhaps you should try to reinstall the 3.0 update?

    If you read the original post Tucker, you'll see that this question is about 1st Gen iPod Touches and that's what the answers have been based on. I know 2nd Gens have also had similar problems, but these often have different causes.
    All I can say (to all) is:
    Make sure your headphones engage COMPLETELY.
    Ensure your headphone jack (and the dock socket) are clean of dust and gunk too.
    This seems to be the root cause for the majority of these problems.
    cheers,
