i've been given an i-pod shuffle as a gift. i don't own a bigger i-pod. there is no usb connection in the package - do i need to buy this separately - anyone know how much they cost? thanks X

Usually USBs cost about £5-£10 or you can get the little docking station. Try this link http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00074Z9P0/ref=er_ra_acc_dp_1/026-5041252-7170864

Have you taken the cap off the Shuffle? I *think* the USB connection is under there (saw one in the Apple shop...waiting for my birthday to roll round!)

thanks - i know where the usb connection is on the shuffle - just that no cables were included to connect the shuffle to my pc.

i checked out the amazon site and saw the docking station - it's £19.00 - a big rip off if you ask me - is this for recharging only or is this used to download music onto the shuffle too.

sorry - i'm SUCH a luddite when it comes to these things.

sorry :-) didn't mean to offend! I just plug my MP3 USB connection direct to the USB port on my laptop so I never thought of needing a cable

Enjoy shuffling :-)

If you want a USB extension cable because your USB ports are at the back of your PC, you want one of these, or similar - 3 quid. Just make sure it's male one end and female the other end.

If you USB ports are on the front of your PC, like Heckenhocker says, just plug it in!

also, if you've got a digital camera it might be the same sort of connector, so you should be able to use that...
