I have a question I tried to charge my ipod shuffle because I just received it today hoooray I just found out that I don't have a hi speed usb port installed on my computer. is there a way I can charge my ipodshuffle with the regular usb port?

i just got mine today also......have you tried charging it or did you not bother since it said that you need a high speed USB port? you can buy one of these (below link) from the apple store (and probably on ebay for less) that would work for you.


hope this helps! D

Can't really see what theysayjump sent you to, but considering Apple's prices are always insanely high I thought I'd recommend going with Newegg. They have USB 2.0 adapters for around $11 shipped via FedEx Saver. Seems like you may have already purchased one, but just in case someone else stumbles across this thread...


Also have Firewire cards for around $15 shipped.

I'm pretty sure mine charges just fine on the regular usb 1.0 port.

The transfer speed bites on either 2.0 or 1.0. I don't think it will charge on a 1.0 but probably a 1.1

It seemed to charge just fine on my laptop's USB port, and it's only a PII...
