I just bought my 1st iPod, a 512 mg Shuffle. I am using Windows XP SP2. My iTunes and iPod software are all up-to-date with most recent versions. I want to charge the iPod battery without updating the music on it. As soon as I plug it into a USB port, it opens iTunes and starts an auto-fill, but I just want to recharge battery. I can go to the iTunes iPod options and deselect "Open iTunes when this iPod is attached", but if I already want to have iTunes open, that doesn't help. I tried to ask this on the Apple website bulletin board but I can't create an ID or log in there. I enter information; then just come to a blank screen.
