Belkin faces a major recall of the , following several customer reports that the device simply doesn't work. An iPodNN reader reported buying two of the devices at a campus computer store, and neither successfully charged the Shuffle. "Both the AC and DC adapters fail to charge the Shuffles indicated by no charging light (yellow or green) as well as the shuffle still showing a red light on the battery indicator button after more than two hours of charging." A Belkin representative confirmed that several units tested did not work. The representative said the company would likely "quarantine all units out there" and contact customers when the problem was identified and resolved.
