Question about Apple iPod shuffle Second Gen. Silver (1 GB) MP3 Player (MA564LL/A)
Hey there... I connected my new ipod shuffle to the USB... by Windows XP flashes the error that the drive connected to USB is unrecognized... Neither does it show any icon on the win explorer nor in itunes.... worst than all, there is no light on in the ipod.... that is... its not even charging.... Please help
I had the same problem where my shuffle just turned off as if it ran out of battery power, and when i tried to plug it in the computer it wouldnt recognise it or i would get an unknow device error. I tried many of the 5r as much as i could but didnt work. Then finally yesterday i tried something new. I pluged the ipod into the computer and left it pluged in to the usb port and i noticed that every time i would lift the ipod from the dock (not all the way) that the light would blink green one time. So what i did was i positioned the ipod back on the dock then lifted it until the green light blinked and i turned it on, and it works now, the battery is charged. However i havent tried to plug it back in the computer to see what happens but i can listen to my music now.

Thanks Michael Hughes for this paragraph.
It works for me, docking and undocking the ipod shuffle. rather connecting to a pc, I insist on an ac wall charger.
I undock and dock several times until a got a steady green light, I leave it alone for hours.. and finally it blinked green (continuos). My Ipod shuffle 2nd gen fixed.
My problem was a drained battery doesn't even charge, and when docked to pc / itunes(latest) unrecognized, and the blinking green and amber (three times) is irritating. When immediately undocked a green blink.
Now, its working even the songs uploaded works fine. Thanks again Mike...

NONE OF THESE TIPS HELPED!!! All I want to know is how to get music on my iPOD shuffle. It keeps saying device not recognized when I plug it in to my computer. I can still listen to music but I can't get anymore music on it. HELP!!!

Remember these five basic suggestions when you run into a problem with your iPod. If one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
Tip: Check Device Manager first (right-click on My Computer, choose Manage, and then select Device Manager). If no devices appear in the Windows Device Manager, go here.
Before starting, make sure your iPod is fully charged and then toggle the Hold switch on and off.
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall , RestoreClick here to go through the 5 R's of iPod troubleshooting, which most of the time will solve your problem. If you're still experiencing the issue after going through each of the steps, then continue on for more suggestions. Still can't see your iPod? Several things could keep iPod from appearing in iTunes or Windows Explorer. The most likely causes are listed below—you'll find information for both USB and FireWire (IEEE 1394) iPod connections. Check each one starting from the top of the list to see if that is what's keeping iPod from appearing.
Or try restoring the ipod to factory settings.
