No sound from a known working headset on my ipod shuffle 1st generation
I can get ITunes to recognize my ipod shuffle and play the songs through Itunes, but can't hear anything in my headset./ Also, is the green battery light supposed to stay lit the whole time the ipod is on? Mine goes off after like 2 or 3 seconds. Of course, Apple doesn't makr it an easy process to change a battery on one of these things, and if you send it to apple they bill you so much, you might as well buy a new one.

Re: No sound from a known working headset on my ipod...
The light should be Hoff when operating, and if you pause it it will blink.
If you hold the play/pause button you will lock the keypad. this is to prevent accidental skipping/stoping/volumae changes while having it on your pocket. Hold the play button for two seconds or more to activate/deactivate this function.

You will need to wipe it clean then put all your songs back into it. Try using a different computer and then put iTunes on it and that should erase it all and then just load your Ipod back up with your music. What happens is that if the Ipod can't read the song, it stutters, tries to play that part, and sometimes skips songs.
The iPod reset utility will reset your iPod shuffle back to it's factory settings. It works for the following shuffles: iPod shuffle (1st Generation) - iPod Software version 1.1.5, iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) - iPod Software version 1.0.3 The reset utility will fix the following issues. 1. The iPod won't play music and can't be restored using iTunes 2. iTunes won't see the iPod but you can see it under "My Computer" in windows or under Apple System Profiler on a Mac. 3. iPod shuffle (1st Generation) is identified as a device in "Recovery mode." iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) is identified as a "USB DFU device."
You have to have administrator privileges to run the restore software and it will wipe out all the information on the iPod (including all your music) and install factory software back onto it. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9, or later, Win2k with sp4, Win XP, this won't work on Vista. Download the file for the program here: MAC http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102formac.html Windows http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102forwindows.html
Install the software onto your computer, plug your iPod into the USB port and run the reset program, it will ask for your permission to reset the iPod, answer yes and the process will proceed. After finishing the reset procedure then use iTunes or whatever software is used to access your iPod and load your music. Enjoy your toy!
go to intunes preferences then devices (this varys on what version of itunes you are using) and look for an options that say "mannage songs mannualy". You may want to update your ipod aswel. www.itunes.com/download
search for your ipod and download the nessary updates for it
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.
sounds like you need a new hard drive, which has a little read-write disk in it that is getting finicky... just to get more use out of it lay it on side or other positions and hear if works ok...if so its diffently Hard drive.
you know the sandisks are 2 gigs no moving parts why doesnt somebody put 20 together making 40 gigs and replace the failing Ipods!!??? just pure electronics and no moving parts and much smaller...not like a hard drive. I thought of this over 30 years ago looking at the first plug in video game.
I have the same problem kind of. I can get ITunes to recognize my ipod shuffle and play the songs through Itunes, but can't hear anything in my headset./ Also, is the green battery light supposed to stay lit the whole time the ipod is on? Mine goes off after like 2 or 3 seconds.
