To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included
iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some
models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode).
When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the
battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power
USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet.

I have heard this process being done by a few folks for different iPod/iPhone devices, so hopefully this will work for you.
This is however, the only suggestion in such cases where an electronic device like your iPod shuffle has been subjected to moisture or water.
If this still does not help, you will more than likely have to take the iPod Shuffle in for service at an Apple-authorized iPod repair center or unfortunately replace it with a new iPod.
I hope this helps and you are able to get your iPod back to functionality again.
you can't .... If you want to use the ipod to play music through a stereo system you will need a 3.5 mm audio jack and use this to connect.. but the shuffle will not hook up to a universal dock made for regular ipods

There are many IPod adapters out there - including from manufacturers such as Philips - just check the spec sheets or the box of the product to make sure it is compatible with your version of the Shuffle.
I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
