I've been on the Apple forums after my Shuffle stopped working yesterday. It was fine in the morning, then by afternoon when I tried to turn it on, I got the blinking lights. I have reset it, but because my MacBook no longer recognizes the Shuffle when I plug it in, there is no way to update it. I am going to try to run it through a disk utility program, and see if I can then restore/update/whatever. I am concerned though that this error is fatal and that this is the end of my beloved Shuffle. Anyone else have the same problem with theirs, and if so, how were you able to fix it? ( I should mention that it is now out of warranty) Cheers.
