I was syncing my ipod with a different version of itunes and agreed to install the new program on my ipod. so as it started to upload i freaked out thinking i was loosing all of my music and ripped out the ipod, whilst it was uploading the program.
it froze and i reset it, then it beeped twice at me and came up with a plain white screen. i reset it numerous times after and it did the same thing. i then let it die and recharged it, but i only got a white screen. it will not turn off and the computer will not detect it and i am out of ideas.
You have to plug your ipod in for atleast 3 to 4 days.
i know it seems long but its for a good cause becaause if you dont you mght just havt to spend another lets say about 200 to300 $' s depending on the gig.. SO JUST PLUG IT IN FROM 3 TO 4 DAYS TO GET A FULL CHARG!

1. The automatic settings in iTunes and iPods will not allow you to sync two iPods with one version of iTunes or sync an iPod with multiple versions of iTunes without the content being completely erased from the iPod. 2. This can be very aggravating if more than one person in your household owns an iPod or you want to add music from a friend's iTunes library to your iPod. Changing the iPod settings through iTunes will let you sync more than one iPod on one computer.
3. Open the iTunes software. Connect one of the two iPods to a USB port found on the one computer. If a small window opens in iTunes after the program recognizes the iPod, you can close the window by clicking "No" or the "X" in the window. 4. Click the name of the iPod positioned under "Devices" on the left side of iTunes. When you highlight the iPod name, a variety of tabs will appear at the top of the iTunes program. 5. Choose the "Summary" tab and options will be listed in the middle of the program. Select the option labeled "Manually manage music and videos." If a window opens, click "OK." 6. Click "Apply" in the bottom right corner to change the settings on the plugged in iPod. Leave iTunes open. Repeat steps 2-6 with the second iPod you want to sync on the one computer.
Install iTunes on your computer. Copy your music into iTunes. Create playlists if you want. Connect iPod to computer. Check and see on the left that iTunes found your iPod. Click on it and select what you want to sync to the iPod (there are different pages across the top of the screen for music, videos and the like). If you need more help, ask and check out apple.com
As with all iPods, you must use Apple's iTunes application to sync your music with your iPod Shuffle.
You'll need to install the latest iTunes by downloading it from Apple click here> and then installing it. You install iTunes like any other downloaded program by double-clicking on the resulting icon after iTunes has successfully downloaded.
Follow the on-screen directions to install iTunes.
Once iTunes is installed, start up iTunes and have it search your computer for music for it to manage for you. While that is going on, plug the white USB cable that came with your iPod into your iPod Shuffle and into one of the USB ports on your computer. This will trigger iTunes to recognize your iPod Shuffle and ask you whether you want to set it up with this computer.
Follow the on-screen prompts to sync your iPod Shuffle with your computer.
To charge your iPod Shuffle, just keep it plugged in to your computer using the supplied white USB cable. Keep the cable connected until the battery indicator on the ipod Shuffle shows that the battery is full.

Are you using iTunes, if so make sure under the ipod preferences you have selected auto-sync
If yr comp's a mac once u have connected the ipod you can just drop and drag
Also it might be the version of iTunes yr using, I'd suggest d/l'ing the latest.
Last but not least, you haven't left it locked it by any chance : )
