- It should install automatically and appear as a removable disc drive in 'my computer' when you plug it in. You should only use 'safely remove hardware' when you have fininshed and want to unplug it again. -

    I'm afraid my experience of media player was limited to uninstalling it as soon as possible everytime I installed windows!
    It's a horrible piece of bloatware. There's much leaner players that dont spy or advertise.

    But for you I re-installed it.

    Have you checked tools>options>devices ?
    Your Ipod should be on the list. If not try adding it.
    Come back and say what happened, I'll have played with WMP a bit more by then.

    Before you stomp on it, have you tried copying music files to it using Windows Explorer?

    Insert the iPod.
    Double click 'my computer'
    Your ipod will show up as a removable storage device.

    Double click it to view what files you have on it already.
    Navigate to the downloaded music folder on your'c' drive or wherever and highlight the music files you want to copy to your ipod.

    Right click the selection then send to.. then removable drive x. They will then be copied.

    Alternatively click copy, then go back to the ipod drive and paste.
    You might want to copy and paste whole folders to make navigating easier when playing.

    This is the simplest way to put music on the ipod, it requires no additional software and you can organize it the way you want.

How do i download songs to my iPod model no.A1204 EMC no. 2125? and how to charge it?


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.

Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

How do you load music onto a mini mp3 player. It looks like an ipod shuffle but is very simplified. When I plug it into my mac or my pc it doesn't seem to be reading it. I am unsure of how to get it to...


All you do is get another charger or have the apple store fix it for you. Once that is done, plug into your computer and device, and a file should open for it.
Click open to view with files.
Once that is done, you can drag all the songs from your computer to your device. Once is done, safely remove your device with the icon down the bottom right corner.
Then it should be done.

I Pod shuffle (2nd. generation) won't hold a charge


Hold in the play button for 10 seconds to reset. If that fails:
iPod shuffle Software Update and Restore
Apple periodically updates iPod shuffle software to improve performance or add
features. It is recommended that you update your iPod shuffle to use the latest
software.
You can choose either to update or to restore the iPod shuffle software.
If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
If you choose to restore, all songs and data are erased from your iPod shuffle. All
iPod shuffle settings are restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod shuffle with the latest software:
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
has the latest software for all models of iPod.
2 Double-click the software install file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the
iPod shuffle Update.
3 Connect iPod shuffle to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
opens.
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.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod shuffle software.
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t see that iPod shuffle is
connected to your computer, turn iPod shuffle off and turn it on again.

Hi,
iPods always say 'do not disconnect' when you connect it to the computer. That is what they are supposed to do. iTunes should open a short time after that. If i Tunes doesn 't open, then click on it to open it. You should see your iPod on the left side.

I suspect that you are not using iTunes to put music into your iPod. You cannot 'drag' music into your iPod. ITunes has to put it there.

You should have all of your music in your iTunes library that you want to put into your iPod. You have to use iTunes to put music into your iPod. Actually, this is the easiest way.

Once your music is in iTunes, plug your iPod into the computer. When your iPod appears in iTunes on the left side, click on the music tab and tell iTunes what music and play lists you want to put into your iPod.

Then click sync at the bottom. The iPod will go into sync mode until all of your music is loaded. Then it will say sync completed. You can then click the arrow next to your iPod to release it from iTunes.

When you want to release it from your computer, click on the little green icon at the bottom right of your computer screen. If you don't see it, click the white arrow. Click on the green plug icon and wait until you see safely isconnect mass storage device from the computer. Click on that and wait until you see, 'It is now safe to disconnect your mass storage device from the computer". Disconnect your iPod now.

Hope that helps.

IPod shuffle 1st gen. Not Recognized By PC


Try a different USB port first. Here are some other suggestions:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer. iPod shuffle may
need to be recharged.
â Make sure you have installed the latest iTunes software from
www.apple.com/ipod/start.
â Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer. Make sure iPod shuffle is
firmly seated in the dock. Make sure the USB connector is oriented correctly. It can be
inserted only one way.
â iPod shuffle might need to be reset. Turn iPod shuffle off, wait five seconds, and then
turn it back on again.
â If there is no status light (or the status light is dimmed) and iPod shuffle doesn’t
appear in iTunes or the Finder, the battery may be completely discharged. Let
iPod shuffle charge for several minutes to see if it comes back to life.
â Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to doublecheck
the system requirements” on page 25.
â Try restarting your computer.
â If none of the previous suggestions solves the problem, you might need to restore
iPod software. See “Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software” on page 26.
â If restoring iPod shuffle doesn’t solve the problem, iPod shuffle may need to be
repaired. You can arrange for service on the iPod shuffle Service & Support website at
www.apple.com/support/ipodshuffle/service.

Hi

Ur Ipod shuffles needs to be reset to factory setting, you will find the utility for Mac and windows machine at:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1293?viewlocale=en_US
http://www.techspot.com/downloads/3726-ipod-shuffle-reset-utility.html


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.

Should work for u as well.

Thanks
