    Hey all.

    I received my Shuffle a week and a half ago and it has been great.

    One problem though--where do I wear it?

    I use my Shuffle primarily for exercise. I thought the clip was just what the doctor ordered. However, I can't figure out where the best place is to put it.

    I thought the answer would be do simply clip it to the waistband of my shorts. Bad move. Near the end of one of my workouts on the treadmill, the Shuffle stopped dead. No response, no lights. Nothing. I think it shorted out with some of my perspiration. I thought it was dead. I called up support and they are sending a replacement. However, this morning I flipped the switch and green lights! It works! It must have dried out.

    So, back to my original question? Where do you wear your Shuffle? I have looked all over for waterproof sport cases, but they aren't available yet. (I hope someone designs one.) Any of you closet MacGyvers have any ideas on a homemade case?

    I wear mine in 2 places: when its not too cold I wear it under the first button of my polo shirt, and when I have a sweatshirt on a clip it onto my pocket.

    I have tried mine clipped to my shirt (button-up), belt, belt loop, pants pocket, and shirt pocket. My problem is that I keep losing it (it ends up falling off). I'm starting to get frustrated. So far I have always been able to find it, but sometime I'm afraid it will be gone for good.

    I usually use my pant's belt loop on the right side of my belt buckle (looking down).

    Persperation repairs

    Hi, i had the same problem today. I wore my new ipod on my gym shorts and after half an hour on the treadmill it shutdown :(

    I thought it could be a low battery but when i connected it to the docking station there was no light :(

    I am going to let it dry, and then hopefully use it again.

    Thanx for creating this thread and giving some feedback on how it started working again :)

    O about the new place to wear it. I am thinking of buying an armband, preferably a nike one and attaching the ipod to it. The armband is quite big and goes around your bicep,tricep...upper arm, lol :)

    I clip it on my shorts -- right near my waist. Use it to workout.

    This is the best place. Clip it there and drop your headphone wire down the front of your shirt.

    I haven't had any problems with sweat related incidents in over a year and a half of use.

    I wear mine in my pocket.

    I'm too self conscious to wear it out.
