Computer Won't Recognize

Hi I've tried the 5 things that Apple recommends. I can turn my Ipod on and play music. The light blinks orange for a few seconds and then goes off, but it does play music. I am trying to download songs from iTunes, but it doesn't see the Ipod as being plugged in and neither does my computer

Hi. Maybe your computer doesn't recognise your iPod, because it doesn't have the driver installed. Your iPod Shuffle looks like one of the newer types, which are smaller and lighter than the previous version. Try re-installing the driver from the Apple website, but make sure it's the correct one, or you might damage it.

When I turn on my ipod shuffle & hit play it blinks green and orange several times and won't play


The Apple iPod shuffle is a digital music player that contains a single indicator light that relays information about the device's battery condition, computer connection and any errors the device is having. The indicator light is capable of blinking red, green or orange as well as displaying a steady red, green or orange light. The iPod Shuffle includes a Universal Serial Bus interface and buttons on the front of the device for controlling music files.

Blinking Orange A blinking orange light indicates the iPod Shuffle is receiving an update via iTunes to the device's internal components. The update could include a patch to repair an error the player encountered once before, an update to the player's file-saving software, or a combination of security, repair and software updates. Updates are free and automatically sent directly from Apple through iTunes to your iPod shuffle before a sync process starts. Disconnecting iPod Shuffle When the player's light is blinking orange, do not unplug the device from your computer's USB port this will stop the update process and possible corrupt the device's internal hard drive. Let the update process and sync process finish before clicking "Eject" within iTunes and removing the player. Disk Use Enabled If you use your iPod Shuffle as a flash drive and not as a music player, a blinking orange light means that the device is connected to your computer and ready to accept files. The "Disk Use" enabled setting is changeable within iTunes if you decide to use your iPod Shuffle for music storage instead of file storage. When set up as a flash drive, the iPod Shuffle is assigned a drive letter by your computer's operating system and the drive lets you "drag and drop" files to the device. b> Charging If your iPod shuffle's battery is completely depleted or low on charge, connect the player to your computer immediately for charging then leave it connected to receive any updates to the device's software and internal components. Its indicator light may or may not blink orange until after it is fully charged. If the battery is low on charge or completely depleted, you may receive an error stating that the iPod is corrupt or needs restoring, close the error message and let the device fully charge.

Ipod wont play


If you didn't use the ipod software download from itunes then the ipod shuffle doesn't recognize the music as playable. I tried to download straight from my ps3 and mine did the same thing. The blinking orange and green light indicate no recognized music.

Green and ORANGE? orange indicates the iPod is searching for music.
UNDERSTAND this- when you play music in the iTunes app., you are hearing the music in your computer not the iPod.
1) Install the latest iTunes application.
2) Do a restore
3) sync your iPod

Can not get ipod shuffle on my computer


The orange light blinks to tell you that it connecting to the computer and is syncing (or trying to sync). It will stay orange until it is fully charged and it will then turn green. If it is blinking orange, then open it using itunes and see what it is syncing. If you have not got itunes then i recommend you download that latest version from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
then once you have installed it onto your computer, add your music to itunes and create a playlist that you want on your ipod. Itunes will have the drivers for you ipod. Plug your ipod into the computer and right click the image of your ipod and select sync ipod. Then choose the playlist that you want the ipod to sync with.

I hope this helps

Green/orange flahing light on IPod and no music.


From Apple.com Support Website. 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.
