i bought my ipod shuffle on march 2005.

the last time i charged my shuffle was 2 weeks ago, when the battery died out, i plugged it to my ipod usb charger, there was no response, no blinking with that yellow light.

i thought there might be a problem with the outlet, i tried another electric outlet, it did not work.
then i thought there may be a problem with my ipod charger. i tried my computer's usb 2.0 usb, the computer did not even recognize it, there is no response at all. i can't even see it as a disk.

do you have any idea why my shuffle completely died?

thanks

    One likely possibility is that your battery has simply expired. There's no recovery possible from that, aside from replacement. Apple does that at a fixed price for all models of iPod which, obviously, makes it a much better deal for a new 5G than for an older iPS.

    A new 512 costs just a bit more, refurbs cost less, offerings on eBay can be quite a bit less (but avoid the Chinese knockoffs you find there).
