I have the same problem, I charged my iPod shuffle once and listened to music for 2 weeks. Someday it went dead so i thought it was time to charge it. When I plug it on the docking station it blinks 3 or 4 times orange and then nothing. No charging, not recognized by computer or iTune.
Is there any solution to that?
Same problem here. Started a few weeks ago. iPod 60GB, Mac Pro, iTunes 8.01 and Leopard 10.5.5. Been synching fine for a year. iTunes then ejects the iPod but the iPod hard disk keeps spinning sounding like it was stuck. I had an extended warranty on the iPod so I took it to Best Buy and then sent me a new one. Same problem! So obviously it isn't the iPod.
I've tried most of the "fixes" I could find, repairing permissions, deleting iPhot cache, etc. To no avail.
Any new ideas?
I solved my issue. First successful sync in at least a week! It did involve read / write permissions. I changed the permissions for "everyone" and "staff" for the iTunes Library and iTunes Music Library.xml files. Not sure why since permissions for "me" were already set to read and write but this did the trick. I used a mind map to capture the many things I tried and the eventual solution.
