    I'm experiencing the same issue: There are blinking green and orange lights on my iPod Shuffle, and it won't play. I reset it, but nothing helps.

    Windows Explorer displays the iPod as a drive, but it will not display the files on the drive. iTunes does not recognize the iPod even though iPodService.exe is running just fine in the background.

    UGH!

      I brought the iPod Shuffle into the Apple Store, and they replaced it for free even though it's about 4 months out of warranty (about 7 months old).

      Apple clearly knows that some iPod Shuffles are defective.

    This happened to me and it was a pretty quick fix.
    I simply restored my ipod to it's original settings and then synced it again and it all worked.
    I'm sure your guys' must be different because I doubt I (if anyone) would be able to figure out the cure to this problem.. "green and orange lights of death".
    good luck.
