I'm wondering, if anybody who has an iPod Shuffle and uses it with an iMac G5 has had any issue connecting to their iPod Shuffle. When I plug my iPod Shuffle into the back of my iMac G5, my iMac does not notice my iPod Shuffle; however, the iPod Shuffle LED does light up for a couple of seconds, then it stops. I tried every USB port, and it never wants to mount. I finally tried connecting the iPod Shuffle to a USB cord; it's like a extension cord for USB devices, not sure what the term is. Anyways, the iPod Shuffle connected to the iMac G5 using the extension cord in a snap with no problems. I have never had an issue with any of my other USB devices ever before by just simply plugging them into the back of my iMac. I definitely had the iPod Shuffle plugged in all the way, because I flex the back panel of my iMac trying to get it in. I even tested all of the ports and they work just fine. I really don't think this is a software or os problem, do you?

What the heck is going on?
