you have to use ipod reset utility.you can download it here..
install it and just follow on screen instruction. after the process is completed, sync your shuffle to itunes. after that your ipod shuffle would work as normal. my concern is, dont ever try formatting again using format utility of windows, you might get the shuffle corrupted permanently.
ok try this and see what happens. plug in the charger and let it charge for a while. unplug it and find the switch on the top of the ipod which you will turn off. No Green will be showing. wait 5 minutes and whic it to shuffle or play and you should have just reset you shuffle. Good Luck
If iPod shuffle won’t turn on or respond â If the status light blinks orange when you press a button, the iPod shuffle buttons are disabled. Press and hold Play/Pause (’) for about three seconds, until the status light blinks green. â Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer. Your iPod shuffle battery may need to be recharged. â Turn iPod shuffle off, wait five seconds, and then turn it on again. â You may need to restore iPod shuffle software. See “Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software” on page 26.
I had the same problem where my shuffle just turned off as if it ran out of battery power, and when i tried to plug it in the computer it wouldnt recognise it or i would get an unknow device error. I tried many of the 5r as much as i could but didnt work. Then finally yesterday i tried something new. I pluged the ipod into the computer and left it pluged in to the usb port and i noticed that every time i would lift the ipod from the dock (not all the way) that the light would blink green one time. So what i did was i positioned the ipod back on the dock then lifted it until the green light blinked and i turned it on, and it works now, the battery is charged. However i havent tried to plug it back in the computer to see what happens but i can listen to my music now.

If the front status light on your iPod shuffle blinks orange and green when you press any button, then your iPod shuffle is experiencing some type of error. Try these troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.
To troubleshoot the iPod shuffle error light:
1. Turn off your iPod shuffle
2. Wait a few seconds
3. Turn your iPod shuffle back on again
If this does not resolve the problem:
1. Check to make sure there are songs on your iPod shuffle
2. Use iTunes to add songs to iPod shuffle and try again
If your iPod shuffle continues to display a blinking orange and green light, use iPod Updater 2005-02-11 or later to restore iPod shuffle, and then add songs with iTunes.
If your iPod shuffle still shows a blinking orange and green light after trying all of the above steps, your iPod shuffle may need service.
Best of Luck.
1. Reset the ipod using the utility 2. Run itunes application to create profile : after you have reset the Ipod just start itunes and it will ask you to provide a profile name, just provide any name and select okay.
I had the same issue, got it sorted using the windows utility.
