This is frustrating. I have a 1gb shuffle I use with my pc laptop (itunes enabled on this machine). I use it as a jump drive also with my G4 PM at work. The PM recognizes it as a flash drive, and starts iTunes when i plug it in (I always select "no" to attributing it to the Mac). However, recently whenever I plug the Shuffle into my PC, its dead. No charge, no syn, nothing. The computer doesn't recognize it at all, either as a flash drive or as the iPod associated with iTunes. It worked perfectly for 2 months in this setup, then just died on the PC. Here what I've done: uninstall/reinstall itunes ipod update and restore check usb drivers - ok run other periperhals on the usb ports - ok Any advice?
