You can do this by transferring music from ipod to computer and then play it from pc. this is the method i know.here are the guide for how to transfer music from ipod to itunes and ipod to computer.

below are the brief steps for how to transfer music from ipod to computer itunes.

  1. Connect the iPod to the computer it normally gets synced to. In iTunes, under Devices (in the source pane), select your iPod.
  2. Under the iPod’s summary, select Enable Disk Use.
  3. In the computer that you want to transfer music to, open iTunes, go to edit>preferences>advanced>general, (the screen will probably already come up under the general tab) and make sure Keep iTunes Music Folder Organized and Copy files to iTunes Music Folder when adding to library are checked. If they are not checked, check them.
  4. Close iTunes. This is very important, because later when you connect your iPod, it could auto sync and delete all the songs on your ipod (iTunes normally warns you in such cases, but it’s better safe than sorry!)
  5. Make sure you can view hidden files, so go to MyComputer>Tools>Folder Options>View, then scroll down until you see Hidden Files and Folders. Click on Show hidden files and folders, if it is not already applied. Click OK. If you are using Windows Vista Home Premium, you will need to go to Control Panel>Folder Options>View.
  6. Connect the iPod. Itunes may ask if you want to link your iPod to this new computer. Click No.
  7. Go to MyComputer. You should see the iPod as a removable device (since you enabled disk use). Click on your iPod.
  8. Open iPod Control. You will see a folder called music.
  9. Right click on the music folder, click properties. In the general tab, in the attribute section, uncheck Read-only and Hidden.
  10. A message should pop-up that says “Confirm Attribute Changes,” select apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files.
  11. Right-click on the music folder and select copy.
  12. Navigate to MyMusic. Open the iTunes folder, and open iTunes music. Click paste. Chill a bit.
  13. In itunes, File>Add Folder to Library…>My Music>Itunes> Music; click add. Voila! You should see a whole bunch of music come in, Itunes will give names to all the songs (since the file names are random four letter names--the file names are still within the file) and organize them.
  14. Authorize any songs you have bought from the iTunes store.Log into itunes, and click authorize. You can authorize up to five computers.

Or, you could plug in your shuffle. Then in iTunes, select your ipod. You should be able to click on the songs, and play them through your computer speakers.

You can only transfer music from an ipod to a computer if they were purchased through itunes.

If that's the case, right click on your ipod's name under devices. Then click Transfer music.

How do i turn on my ipod shuffle?.......and how long do i charge the battery for?... and how do i know my ipod is fully charged?


  • first i will cover turning the unit on. then i will cover how to charge the unit.
    -Move the power switch on the top of the iPod Shuffle to the "Normal" or "Shuffle" position.
  • Press the play button on the iPod Shuffle to begin music playback. If the iPod does not begin to play, follow the rest of the instructions.
  • Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Shuffle and then connect the other end of the cable to your iPod power adapter.
  • Plug the iPod power adapter into a standard electrical outlet to charge the iPod Shuffle's battery. Try to press the play button again.
  • Connect the iPod Shuffle to your Mac or PC computer using the iPod USB cable. Then, open the iTunes program on the computer and sync your iPod with your music library. If your iPod Shuffle was frozen, it should now turn on.
  • to tell if the ipod shuffle is charging. Eject iPod shuffle in iTunes, but leave it physically connected to the USB port. The front LED should be orange if it's charging (or green if it's fully charged). If it's not charging (such is the case if it's connected to a low-power USB port on a keyboard), you won't see a front LED. If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great day.

    â Slide the three-way switch off and then on again.
    â Make sure the earphone or headphone connector is pushed in all the way.
    â Make sure the volume is adjusted properly. A volume limit might be set. See “Setting
    a Volume Limit” on page 25.

    My ipod shuffle wont play music


    It won't play music while connected to computer, that's for sure. It only plays when it's disconnected from the wall charger and computer.

    The songs could be in the wrong format
    AAC is iTunes native format
    Mp3 generally works
    WMA is iffy - only unprotected (non-DRM) files will work
    Streaming songs won't work

    Audiobook download


    Playing Songs, Audiobooks, and Podcasts on iPod shuffle iPod shuffle allows you to play your audio files in a couple different ways—you can play songs, audiobooks, and podcasts in the order in which they appear on your player, or let iPod shuffle work its namesake magic for you (that is, shuffle the files by playing them randomly).
    Show Me How
    If you want iPod shuffle to play audio files in the order in which they appear on the player, move the switch on the top of the iPod shuffle to the play in order (circular arrows) position. If you want iPod shuffle to play songs in random order, move the switch to the shuffle (crossed arrows) position.
    ip02_playfnky_04_shuflebutton.gif This iPod Shuffle is set to shuffle.
    To play music, an audiobook, or podcast, just press the Play/Pause button. To skip to the next song (or a different song if you're in shuffle mode, or a different chapter if you're listening to an audiobook or podcast), press the Next/Fast-forward button. To fast-forward through the audio, hold down the Next/Fast-forward button. To go back to the beginning of a song (or the previous chapter), press the Previous/Rewind button; press this button twice to go to the previous song or hold it down to rewind through the file.
    To stop play, press the Play/Pause button during play. To turn off iPod shuffle, move the switch to the Off position (you shouldn't see green beneath the switch).
