Lost my Apple docking station so sought a cheap replacement. Ipod shuffle didn't fit comfortably on the unit, computer didn't recognise the unit. Couldn't sync with iTunes. A waste of money I'm afraid. Unfortunately may have to pay Apple's exorbitant price for something that works.
The product was quick to arrive however does nothing more that light up. Once connected to my ipod it does not recognise it or charge it. luckily i did not pay too much for this product but i would not recommend it.
I bought this to go with my new iPod Shuffle, At a glance the shuffle in the picture looked ok and I ordered it. It just lights up. It doesn't charge, it doesn't sync. So I guess the latest Shuffle isn't 2G or 3G. My Shuffle says it's model A1373. And yes when I look very carefully at the shuffle in the picture I can now see the difference. But come on, Apple don't label their Shuffles as 2G, 3G, or whatever, so how about telling us something we can check.
It's ok if you're looking for a charger - and just it. I tested with my Ipod and expected it would connect to the computer so I could manage my musics. Until now I don't know if worked or not: the Ipod turned on (green light) but didn't connected to the computer or played music.
