Restoring will erase and reformat the iPod's hard drive, reload the software with the Mac version and put it back to default settings. Once the restore is complete follow the on screen instructions and it should connect to iTunes and give you a prompt to automatically update your library onto the fresh installation. If you want to update manually or using selected playlists choose no and it will default to manual mode and you can choose whatever setting you like: Restoring iPod to factory settings with iTunes 7
By the way, for future reference you've posted in the iPod Shuffle forum, you might want to post any other questions in the Nano forum where you can be sure you get a relevant answer.G5 PowerMac 1.8 DP, Mac OS X (10.4.10), Xerox XA7-19i LCD Monitor, 30GB iPod 5G, 80 GB iPod Classic

so, would these instructions also work with 1st generation shuffle? moving from mac to pc?
Yes, but you shouldn't have to reformat a shuffle since it ONLY uses Windows FAT format no matter which platform it's used with.
Restoring it is a good idea, IF necessary...Ibook/iMac/QS/eMac/PB iPodPhoto, Nano, Shuffle v1(1.1.5)&2(1.0.3) iTunes7.3, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
