Hello bernice24,

You charge your iPod by connecting it to the USB port on your computer using the supplied cable. The computer must be turned on. Note that USB keyboards and hubs do not generally provide enough power to charge. You must connect the ipod directly to a port on the computer itself.

The iPod itself may be turned on or turned off but the unit will charge more quickly if it is turned off.

Best Regards,

Greetings bernince24,

Generally when an Ipod is charged, it is off and connected to a usb port with your computer. It simply draws power off the computer. It is all pretty intuitive, plug and play. Meaning the once you hook the ipod to whatever charging device you are using, it will charge on it own from there.

I hope this helps.

Wen i connect my i pod to computer it does not connect


Check to see whether your iPod shuffle is the original stick version or the newer version, which plugs into the iPod dock connector.


Turn your PC on.

The PC needs to be on to transfer music and charge the iPod shuffle.


Place the iPod shuffle in the iPod dock connector if you have the newer version.

If you're using the original version, then plug it directly into a high-power USB port on your PC.


Check the monitor to ensure iTunes has loaded.

This means a connection was established.

NEED INSTRUCTION FOR Apple iPod shuffle 3rd Generation Silver


Connect the iPod shuffle USB cable connector into a high-power USB port on your computer.
Note: To charge an iPod shuffle battery, connect the device to a high-power USB port.


Please be aware that USB keyboards and non-powered USB hubs generally do not have high-power USB ports.


If you connect to a low or non-powered port, iPod shuffle will not charge.

The computer must be turned on and set to not go to sleep.


Plug the other end of the iPod shuffle USB Cable into the headphone port on the iPod shuffle.

Verify the iPod shuffle is connected securely.


Once the iPod shuffle is plugged in, it will take about 2 hours to charge the battery to 80% capacity and about 3 hours to charge it to 100%.

How to recharge the Apple iPod Shuffle Silver MP3 Player


According to the manual found here: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/ipodshuffleuserguide.pdf

"Remove the USB cap and connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your
computer. The battery status light on the back of iPod shuffle turns on.
The iPod shuffle battery is 80-percent charged in about two hours, and fully charged in
about four hours.
When the battery is charging, the iPod shuffle status light is amber. When the battery is
fully charged, the light is green until you disconnect iPod shuffle. If you don't see the
status light, try another USB port on your computer"

Batteries also wear out from time to time, so if you find that it's not charging no matter what you do, it's likely that you need a new battery. Here's a link to more info on iPod batteries: http://www.apple.com/batteries/ipods.html

How do I re charge battery with electrical plug


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.

To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store) 1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected). 2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter. 3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.

    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
