Charging my IPod

I bought a 2nd generation Shuffle and cannot get this to charge properly. I have registered the iPod and loaded my songs, but it doesn't charge. I have tried it with both the shuffle on and off.

Can anyone help?

IPOD Shuffle deletes songs if I delete them from the music library in Itunes

You have to keep all the songs that you want on your iPod on your computer, otherwise you will get this problem. So if you want song "a" on your iPod it must also be in your iTunes library at all times unless you don't want it on your iPod anymore

My Ipod shuffle does not work, when I switch on the ipod, I see orange light on and does not show green. I charged the battery for more than 4 hours. Can anyone help ne why is this happening and...

I am not sure about the 1st generation but the 2nd generation definitely charges via the USB connection. If you don't hear the music its because there are no songs on your device. When you initially add songs, they go to the Library in iTunes, not the Shuffle. Just drag and drop your songs from the "Library" to your "Device" in iTunes and then you'll notice them get sync'd with the Shuffle.
