    What version of iTunes?

    Did you install the shuffle software from the CD?

    I had similar problem. while updating iTunes, shuffle juz went freez and iTunes could not recognize shuffle anymore. even tired using ipod updater but then it also not able to detect the ipod. I searched everywhere in the web for the solution but could not find any.
    couple of places I read that Apple repalced the ipod itself for similar problems. But I wanted to try all the possible solution by myself and

    finally I used windows xp disk managemnet where it shows ipod as removable disk
    you can right click and format using some file system ( i formatted using FAT filesystem)
    then used ipod updater software to restore it.
