    I just got my 2G Shuffle in the mail, and I think its DOA. If you turn it into the on position, I do not get any status lights, and if I plug it into the dock and the dock into my USB port, it does not show up in iTunes. Is this a good sign its DOA and should be returned, or is this something I should actually call Apple about?

    What light(s) does the shuffle display when you place it in the dock?

    No lights at all. It makes no lights.

    They're having me try to charge it for four hours. We'll see in the morning.

    Okay, I re-read the comments the gentleman made last night from AppleCare. He thought that the lights were turning on, which they are not. He still recommended getting a replacement, however, so that's what I'll do. =/

    Does anything show up in Disk Utility (assuming you are on a mac) when you plug it in?

    At this point, its a moot point. It has been replaced (locally) and the new one is perfect!
