Ipod Shuffle Problem

Hi! Just wondered if anyone here could help me, as the online Ipod Shuffle troubleshooting page was useless.
Basically, I have a second generation ipod. While I was on holiday, I wasn't able to recharge it. I noticed the light went red and eventually the ipod stopped working. I assumed the battery was empty and planned to recharge it when I got back. Well I am back and I am trying to recharge it, but the whole thing looks dead. No light. No response. I got the ipod (brand new) for Christmas, so I doubt that the battery needs replacing. I also have the latest version of Itunes installed.
Does anybody have any idea of what could be wrong?
Thanks! Smiley

Now to hope BlueRhizome actually has something half-decent to put on it. Wink

Re: Ipod Shuffle Problem

Oh ok rules me out then I don't have a hoody thing either!
@adiewoo, watch it!
Now all you apple fan boys are getting your iPhones maybe I could pick up a cheap ipod.
What is the difference between an ipod, which I understand and an Ipod shuffle. Does the Ipod shuffle do something different?
I am asking here because if I ask my kids they will take the [Censored] out of me for being an old fart, bit like Adie does.

Re: Ipod Shuffle Problem

An ipod is designed to fail one day after the guarantee period.
Failing that, it will become unfashionable.

I got a Mini (4 years old) and a shuffle (2 years old) both working okay so could never justify getting the latest Nano.
Edit: Just saw this from the above link.

Re: Ipod Shuffle Problem

You don't, except that when downloading onto the shuffle the music will be played in playlist order. But the clue is in the name 'Shuffle' most users will go with a random pick from their music collection.

Re: Ipod Shuffle Problem

As a basic rule, proper ipods (eg 60gb) are for boys who have decent music collections.  Shuffles and nanos are for girls to put their 'Love Actually' soundtrack and Simply Red albums on.
