    Got a new iPod Shuffle (1GB model). Did all the iTunes upgrades, etc. Mac mini does not see the iPod Shuffle. Tried going into Disk Utility, nothing. Went under iPod Updater, nothing. Open up iTunes, nothing. Any ideas? This is the first major problem I've had with an Apple product :(

    iPod Shuffle not recognised by iTunes

    I have similar problem. iPod Shuffle worked fine on my iMac G5 until yesterday.

    Installed Tiger recently but I mention this only in passing. I do not think the Tiger install is the problem as I have done one successful iTunes synch on the Shuffle since the upgrade.

    I have a separate 20GB iPod and I did do a successful iTunes synch on this. Since then iTunes has refused to recognise the Shuffle (so this may be the route cause).

    Various sites suggest reformating iPod Shuffle but this is impossible as my iMac will not regonise the Shuffle AT ALL (so updater won't work and you can't reformat drive).

    Now totally stuck and can't find any solutions. Any help very gratefully received...!

    My shuffle (which I bought on Friday) didn't work when I plugged it in, I had to install the software from the CD (iPod Updater 3-22-2005 or something like that). That was on Tiger, with iTunes already updated to 4.7.1.
