Re: My Ipod shuffle wont charge
Do you have the software from the CD installed on the computer?
Have you tried shutting it off while connected for a few seconds and turning it on again?
Have you tried restoring it and updating the software on it?
After you install the update on the PC, Connect iPod shuffle to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
If you?re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn?t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
Go to Control panel>Performance and maintenance> System> Hardware> Device manager> Universal Serial Bus Controller, click on the + sign to see the list of installed devices. If your player is connected, it should be listed there with a yellow flag (the yellow flag indicates that although the connection is there, it is not working properly). Right click on it>Properties>Troubleshoot. See if the troubleshooter can help. If not, click on Action on the top bar and then Uninstall. Leave your shuffle on and connected and reboot. XP should now recognize and install it.
Another possible solution.
Click on Start, click on Run and type the following in the opening textbox:
and press the Enter key
A window will open (black and white) and will display the following:
C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name\
Type the following at the end of the above line after the \
Net start stisvc
And press the Enter key
You will get a message that service is already started (if so this does not solve the problem) or that it is starting (if so this may solve the problem). Then try connecting your camera after you close this window. To close this window, type EXIT at the end of the displayed line and press the Enter key.
Yet another possible solution:
Open Tweak UI if you have it. Get it if you don't. In Tweak UI, open the My Computer tab/line and click on Drives. A list of all possible drive names will appear with the ones you want to show in My Computer checked. If your removable storage/generic volume/camera drive as shown in Device Manager (mine was F:) is not
checked, check it. The drive will appear in My Computer.
If your drive is already checked, it's something else.
Tweak UI can be downloaded from the following site:

To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included
iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some
models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode).
When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the
battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power
USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

The iPod reset utility will reset your iPod shuffle back to it's factory settings. It works for the following shuffles: iPod shuffle (1st Generation) - iPod Software version 1.1.5, iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) - iPod Software version 1.0.3 The reset utility will fix the following issues. 1. The iPod won't play music and can't be restored using iTunes 2. iTunes won't see the iPod but you can see it under "My Computer" in windows or under Apple System Profiler on a Mac. 3. iPod shuffle (1st Generation) is identified as a device in "Recovery mode." iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) is identified as a "USB DFU device."
You have to have administrator privileges to run the restore software and it will wipe out all the information on the iPod (including all your music) and install factory software back onto it. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9, or later, Win2k with sp4, Win XP, this won't work on Vista. Download the file for the program here: MAC http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102formac.html Windows http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102forwindows.html
Install the software onto your computer, plug your iPod into the USB port and run the reset program, it will ask for your permission to reset the iPod, answer yes and the process will proceed. After finishing the reset procedure then use iTunes or whatever software is used to access your iPod and load your music. Enjoy your toy!
Make sure that you plug your ipod into a high power usb port. Also some computers won't charge it if the comp is in sleep mode.Try using the usb on the back of the tower. The indicator light will be a steady green if it is charged. Also make sure you haven't disabled the ipods buttons.
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.
