Question about Apple iPod shuffle MP3 Player

1 Answer

No sound from a known working headset on my ipod shuffle 1st generation

I can get ITunes to recognize my ipod shuffle and play the songs through Itunes, but can't hear anything in my headset./ Also, is the green battery light supposed to stay lit the whole time the ipod is on? Mine goes off after like 2 or 3 seconds. Of course, Apple doesn't makr it an easy process to change a battery on one of these things, and if you send it to apple they bill you so much, you might as well buy a new one.

The light should be Hoff when operating, and if you pause it it will blink. If you hold the play/pause button you will lock the keypad. this is to prevent accidental skipping/stoping/volumae changes while having it on your pocket. Hold the play button for two seconds or more to activate/deactivate this function. -Chris

    If I remember correctly, you should ba able to play music with it while it's plugged in a USB port. It might be your battery that is dead, but when powered by USB you should be able to see if you can get sound out. If so, the battery might be your poblem.

IPOD SHUFFLE 1 GB SECOND GENERATION DOESN'T SEEM TO BE SYNCING PROPERLY AS SONGS JUMP TO THE NEXT SONG AFTER PLAYING A PERCENTAGE OF A SONG. tHIS PROBLEM SEEMS SOMEWHAT RANDOM BUT WITH HIGH FREQUENCY....


You will need to wipe it clean then put all your songs back into it. Try using a different computer and then put iTunes on it and that should erase it all and then just load your Ipod back up with your music. What happens is that if the Ipod can't read the song, it stutters, tries to play that part, and sometimes skips songs.

Here's simple steps to cure the problem if your iPod shuffle won't play and does that green-yellow-green-yellow-green-yellow blinking thing:

  1. Plug in iPod shuffle
  2. You'll notice the "Podcasts" play list under your iPod volume.
  3. Delete the "Podcasts" playlist.
  4. ITunes will re-sync
  5. Unmount the iPod Shuffle and everything should be fine.

If that doesn't work try the link below. It's for the iPod Shuffle (1st generation) restore utility.

Hope it helps.

Ipod is not recognized by itunes. it wont play or charge it just blinks 4 times when i plug it in


  1. 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."
  2. 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
  3. 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!

My Ipod shuffle does not work, when I switch on the ipod, I see orange light on and off..it does not show green. I charged the battery for more than 4 hours. Can anyone help ne why is this happening and...


I am not sure about the 1st generation but the 2nd generation definitely charges via the USB connection. If you don't hear the music its because there are no songs on your device. When you initially add songs, they go to the Library in iTunes, not the Shuffle. Just drag and drop your songs from the "Library" to your "Device" in iTunes and then you'll notice them get sync'd with the Shuffle.

Ipod problem - playing songs in order


sounds like you need a new hard drive, which has a little read-write disk in it that is getting finicky... just to get more use out of it lay it on side or other positions and hear if works ok...if so its diffently Hard drive. you know the sandisks are 2 gigs no moving parts why doesnt somebody put 20 together making 40 gigs and replace the failing Ipods!!??? just pure electronics and no moving parts and much smaller...not like a hard drive. I thought of this over 30 years ago looking at the first plug in video game.
