    While charging the Apple IPod shuffle is connected to the computer and it keeps flashing the amber color (charging) It has been plugged into the computer all day, but is not charged(does not turn green) What am I doing wrong, there is no wall outlet-just USB port. My daughter took it home and tried it on her new computer and it didn't charge on it either.

It should come with a connector to plug into the ipod. When the other end of this connector is plugged into the power socket on the wall, it should start charging the ipod.

If the above still doesn't work, what happened when you said you couldn't get it to charge? Did the word "Charging" not appear on the screen, or the "Charging finished" words not appear after plugged in for a long time?

I have a iPod shuffle 2nd gen. But haven't used for a long time. Now its not switching on. What to do?? :(

Batteries--especially rechargeable ones--do not hold their charge forever. The batteries power naturally drains, even if you don't use them. Just recharge your ipod, and it should work fine.

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%.

hope this helps

How to recharge the Apple iPod Shuffle Silver MP3 Player

According to the manual found here:

"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:

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.

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.

    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
    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

    I downloading the restoring ipod WONT RESPOND AT ALL

    Do you have the oportunity to try a different shuffle on your computer and see if it will charge? If it will, it's probably your shuffle that is the problem. If that is the case, check the contacts on your shuffle to make sure they are not damaged or dirty. I have the same iPod myself, and although I've used it acouple of hours daily for a year, the batteries aren't supposed to (or at least they are not going to) last forever.
