View Full Version : iPod Shuffle 1st Gen, with iTunes 7, and Windows Question?

Oct 31, 2006, 12:49 AM
So I just bought a refurb 512MB iPod shuffle 1st Gen for my Uncle for a Christmas gift. He is running iTunes 7 in Windows XP. I have heard that iTunes 7 expecially on PCs doesn't seem to like 1st Gen Shuffles, I have some questions. I've heard that the iPod won't stay mounted as a device in iTunes 7 so you can drag selected songs to it. I've only had regular iPods, so im not too familar with the Shuffle, if it doesn't stay mounted is there any other way to select what songs are synced to it, or are you stuck using the "Random Syncing" or whatever they call it. Can you specify which playlist to be automatically synced when it is connected? Some people say it broke theirs, flashing green lights etc... Did the Reset Utility that was recently released fix this problem, if I happen to encounter it? Are there any other problems using an iPos shuffle with iTunes 7 on XP? Thanks
