Update: While the blinking amber continues, I have determined that the iPod is indeed charging in the dock. Still don't understand why it's blinking and not solid amber. I will see if it goes to solid when fully charged.iBook G4 15-inch, Mac OS X (10.4.3)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 29, 2005 1:10 PM (in response to Mark Mckenzie)Well, the iPod shuffle -- sitting in the dock which is connected to the USB hub -- is fully charged, and still blinking amber. In further reading here and elsewhere, I've learned that apparantly plugging the shuffle into anything except a computer with iTunes will cause this never-ending amber blinking, even after charging is complete.
So now at least I know the dock works for charging the shuffle. The blinking is kind of annoying, however. You'd think this would not happen with an Apple-made dock, no matter where it was plugged into a USB port.
I guess I could cut the wire off the back of the dock and just use it as an elegant stand!PowerBook G4 Titanium, Mac OS X (10.2.x)
