    Just purchased an iPod Shuffle 1st generation from Ebay.
    Has been used on a PC with Microsoft.

    Will not go to source on iTunes 7.03 just stays on the deck top as a white oblong display.

    Have downloaded the latest patch from Apple.
    Has had no effect.

    Can anyone help

    many thanks:)

    Can you reformat it in Disk Utility in the Utilities folder? Is iTunes already running when you plug the iPod in? :)

    Have tried Disk utility but restore does not light up.
    Suspect this may be a forgery unit.
    Has blue light on front not green/amber and no shuffle switch on back just on/off.

    Sounds like a fake, that sucks. File a complaint with Paypal if that's how you paid.

    Something sounds wrong with it. I've used several PC-formatted iPods on my Macs and have never run into an issue.

    Using a Mac-formatted iPod on a PC, well that's a different story...

    It's fake. Would love to see the closed auction...
