    My 512mb iPod Shuffle marks an error. (the green and orange lights appear blinking).
    I had already reset the iPod and it still won't work. The iPod updater does not recognize the Shuffle, I canonly see "removable disk" in My PC (when it always says "ROCO'S IPOD"). I cannot hear any music.

    The only thing that appears to work is that the Shuffle is charging.

    Please I need help!!

    Ah - the Blinking Lights of Death. Usually a fatal sign. However, the fact that your Shuffle is recognised as a removable disk means there is some hope. Try using Disk Utility/Disk Management to partition/erase. Then run the latest iPod updater and see if it picks up the Shuffle. If it doesn't, take it to where you bought it from, if it is still under its one year warranty. They should replace it.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but what is Disk Utility/Disk Management to partition/erase?

    Well I don't need help anymore. They are going to change it for a new one in the Apple Store.:D
