itunes says my shuffle is in recovery mode. I click restore but it cannot connect.

I tried the Control Panel>Admin>Services>Apple Mobile Device>Stop>Start and I get a message saying it started then stopped.

I have uninstalled and re-installed itunes 3 times but cannot get past this point.

Itunes can see a device as the image of my device and the correct colour is shown.

Any help please?
