    IF it's blinking orange it will NEVER turn green until it's UNmounted (System Tray>safely remove hardware)...if that's not the case you may have

    1. problem with providing adequate power from your USB port(s). Shuffle requires "high-power" (5v, 500mA) to charge.
    2. faulty shuffle

    It generally takes longer than 4 hours to charge a shuffle fully...make sure that your computer doesn't sleep while shuffle is connected. If it's a laptop make sure it's connected to line power.

    BTW, you've posted this in the 1st Gen shuffle discussion.
