Currently Being ModeratedOct 11, 2006 11:35 PM (in response to Marcher11)I'm assuming you've read enough of your User's Manual to at least be able to definitely tell that the Shuffle wasn't returning proper charging indications. You've ommitted helpful details like that from just about all of your shotgunned rants.
It has to be fully seated in a high-power (500mA) USB port to charge.
Geography and cabling prevents full seating in some ports on some machines.
Not all ports on all machines are high power. Some machines have none. Some others, notably consumer-model Windoze laptops, crank back their port power as a battery-saving function; the Shuffle won't crank those up automatically, it has to be done under system control. For some machines the only solution is to install a new USB2 card.iMac G5 17" iSight, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 19, 2006 11:09 PM (in response to Marcher11)I've been having the same problem. My friend compared our shuffles(Her's is 512 Mb, mine's the 1Gb.) She said that it might be short ciruited. If you short circuit that means when you plug you iPod into a USB port while the iPod is on it kills the inside, but I don't think I had mine on. Anyway, you might have short circuited it, and if that's not that case I would suggest sending it back to Apple.

I have an ipod shuffle (512 mb) bought in the US in Mar 2006. I started using it only since 10th of Nov 2006. For the first one week, it worked pretty well.
But, over the last two days, it is not getting "powered on".
While putting it on charge (thro USB port), the status light as well as the battery indicator light blink continuously (and 'not' glow conti..). but, once I remove it from the port and check for the battery level, it glows green and works fine.
If i switch it off, and start it after an hour, it shows "dead". I again insert it into the USB port and remove it in a minute, it works well ??!!
Also, if i put in in "pause" mode and start it even after an hour, it works o.k.
Is it wrong to switch off and on frequently ?
I might accidently have put it for charging without switching the ipod off...Is that a problem ?
Can i "restore" my ipod ?
