Try other usb items like flash drives. do they work ? if yes. there is no problem with your vista configuration. the problem is on ipod shuffle... then try on say win xp .. if the ipod works fine. .then you need to install some sort of driver for your ipod shuffle. hope this helps.

Is it new?
On the iphone if you hold (and keep holding) the home button as you connect both ends of the firewire/usb this triggers a complete reinstall, without needing to connect to Itunes.

Hello Bluben,

Your Apple iPod should work just fine with Windows Vista providing you are using the latest version of Quicktime / iTunes.

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.

If the status light blinks orange when you press a button, the iPod shuffle buttons are
disabled. Press and hold Play/Pause (’) for about three seconds, until the status light
blinks green.

IPod Shuffle and compatibility with USB ports


yes it's a common problem, it might be a usb 2.0 or high speed usb port but the motherboard is unable to supply enough ampage to supply the port. Assuming you have tried removing other usb connected peripherals and tried a different port, the only way you may get the ipod to connect is to purchase a mains powered usb hub as the power supplied is sufficient to connect to ipods and pda's etc.
