  • Ipod shuffle (2nd gen.) not recognized by my powerbook (g4)

    My new iPod shuffle (2nd gen.) not recognized by my powerbook (g4). Get error message "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer". It works just fine with my iMac (g4). If iTunes is open the shuffle is just not recognized. Have tried my shuffle on a friend's PowerBook (Intel based) and it works fine. His new shuffle behaves exactly like mine on my powerbook. All other uses with USB ports appear fine - flash drives etc. I did initialize a new flash drive with 128 bit encryption before the 1st attempt to initialize my new shuffle.
    Help! Thanks

    Does it show in Apple System Profiler's USB tree? Have you tried connecting it (through its dock) to another computer?

  • Ipod Shuffle (2nd Gen) Does Not Recognize Songs

    My Ipod Shuffle (2nd Gen) does not recognize the songs that are loaded on it. When I turn it on after a full charge the green light stays on for about 5 seconds then turns off. When I press play, the colors flash orange and green indicating there are no songs loaded. I've tried all the recommendations and also seen that people with similar problems have not been able to resolve the problem as well. I've seen some cases where the use of the Ipod Rest Utility is recommended however I have Vista on my PC and there is no version available for that o/s that I could find. Does anyone have any other suggestions. Thanks.
    Ipod Shuffle (2nd Gen)   Windows Vista  

    I changed the iPod to Disk mode and it just blinks orange while it is connected to the PC. It says that it is synched on the PC screen but I thought the blinking orange light means that it isn't. I took it back out of disk mode. The original problem still exists...when I turn it on, the green light stays lit for 5 seconds then there's no light at all....when I press play the lights alternate orange and green indicating no music is loaded which is wrong since it shows all my songs that are loaded when it is connected to my PC. What a mess.

  • IPod shuffle 2nd Gen is not recognized on PC, but other shuffles are. Software is updated. Is this the end of the road for this particular shuffle?

  • IPod shuffle(2nd gen) is not recognised by Windows XP

    I instaled iTunes software from the website
    and transfered the songs to the iPod.
    When i unpluged the iPod and turned it ON, the green light on one side is glowing continuously.
    I neither responded to any of the button press.
    When I plugged it in again, the system was not able to recognise the device.
    Do help me resolve the issue.
    Thanks in advance

  • Ipod shuffle 2nd gen does not charge on new 5W USB power adapter

    Hi,
    my perfectly functional ipod shuffle 2nd gen with original dock will not charge with the new Continental Europe 5W USB power adapter, even though the specs of the power adapter include the 2nd generation shuffle. Shuffle will blink orange three times, longer than normal blinking, and then do nothing. probably nothing I can do about it, but worth a note. The US model of the new 5W adapter does not include the 2nd gen shuffle, so maybe it is an error on the apple specs page.
    Maybe the 2nd gen needs more than 5W to charge?

    indeed, it needs the bigger 12 Watt Adapter and the apple site is wrong.

  • My ipod shuffle 2nd gen is not connecting to computer right.

    My ipod suffle second gen is flashing red 3 times and then showing clear,like its off.After the flash's the computer is not recognizeing it.what happened?

    My guess, based on your info and the fact that the shuffle is an older model, is that the shuffle's battery is worn out and not holding a charge.  When you plug it in, it functions because it is getting power from the USB connection and appears to charge.  When you disconnect it, it goes dead because battery does not hold the charge.
    Since you have already tried doing a Restore, the problem is hardware and not software.  Unless you want to do the work yourself
    http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Installing+iPod+Shuffle+2nd+Generation+Battery+Repla cement/3656/1
    the cost for replacing the battery probably exceeds the $50 for a new 4th gen shuffle.

  • My iPOD Shuffle (2nd gen') is not responding??

    Hello iPod fans, my shuffle (2nd generation) has stopped working all of a sudden. The charging lights do not illuminate while charging on cradle. Off cradle, I do not see any lights either. Have tried all 5R's and updated iTunes but in vain. The iTunes list does not show or recognize my shuffle. How do I reset or restore it back to factory settings in this situation ? Please help?????

    Do Not Use Latest Version Of Itunes see below from other thread on same topic. For some reason apple does not support the shuffle with newer versions of Itunes.

    I tried everything. Then, this worked for me (I have a PC)
    1. Uninstall iTunes completely
    2. Delete any remaining iTunes files (you may have a library file in My Documents > My Music > iTunes
    3. Restart your computer
    4. Install iTunes 7.0.2 (www.oldapps.com for the version)
    Downgrade, it will change your life. This version runs faster than 7.5, works fine with the iPod, and even managed to find all the artwork for my songs - which the later versions never did. I thought newer versions were supposed to be better?

  • I just downloaded latest version of Itunes and now my Ipod does not show up when I connect to Itunes, I just downloaded latest version of Itunes and now my Ipod does not show up when I connect to Itunes

    I recently downloaded the latest version of Itunes.  As soon as that was finalized, my Ipod stopped showing up on the screen when I was in Itunes and I can't sync new songs and audiobooks to it.  How do I get my Ipod to work again?  It charges up and plays just fine, it will not sync or update with Itunes.  There is nothing showing on Itunes that I can manually sync it, either.  That option can't be clicked on.  I have no other devices other than the Ipod that syncs with Itunes now, I used to have an Iphone, but I don't anymore

  • Help!!! My Ipod Shuffle 2nd Gen is not powering up...

    Help!!! My 2nd gen IPod Shuffle is not powering up or charging ...Every time when I plug it in, it simply flashes in Orange for 5 seconds & it goes blank. No other light comes on, it refuses to turn on.
    It also shows up as 'device not recognised' on my PC...It is not charging either. I am unable to acces it via itunes...also I tried my friends same model shuffle & it works just fine & perfect. I used my charger cable & PC on her shuffle and it works out fine. So I figured it has to be a problem with MY IPod...Please help me since this keeps me going everyday...I cant live without my music... I Have tried to reset it, but it doesnt seem to work since no lights are flashing...

    You have done good troubleshooting and have ruled out possible causes, such as a software issue on the computer, problem with USB port, and faulty USB cable.  The remaining cause is a problem on the shuffle, and since this is a 2nd gen shuffle, which is now about 5 or 6 years old (and it sounds like you use it a lot), the most likely explanation is that the shuffle's battery is worn out and has exceeded the max number of charging cycles.

  • IPod Shuffle(2nd Gen) will not sync or restore

    I've done it all. Tried different USB slots. The 5 R's. Reset Utility. Made the appleipod.bat file and ran it with the .dll's....
    My iPod wont sync and allow new music to be put on. I was able to reset the iPod with the reset utility and I have no music on it anymore. Can't sync it with new music either.
    Was the shuffle amde to be a obsolescence device? Meaning it was intentionally made to break after just 1 month of using it?
    Anyone know any fixes?
