This is my second used ipod shuffle 1st generation. I don't know if I'm stupid, crazy, or terribly unlucky at this point, but I can't get the thing to play (No problems with my video ipod ever !)I've done everything in the manual. I've loaded it through iTunes and it shows that the podcasts are on there and the guide at the bottom shows that it's 3/4 full. It's charged. I unplug it from the USB shove the head phones in, turn it on (the little battery light shows it's getting juice)I press play...nothing. I go through all the steps of restoring ect. ad nauseum....nothing ! I press play again (maybe it's on pause???....nothing! I turn it up...I advance to the next track?....nothing...nothing....nothing)

Since the exact thing is happening with this one (the second one), and I've spent hours troubleshooting them I don't know what else to do but give up and cry into my beer.

Help !

    Is the switch set to the 1st position, eg play-in-order?
