my computer does not recognise my ipod shuffle 1st gen
do you get a notification from windows saying "xxxx's ipod'?
if yes then a simple restore should do it....via itunes
in Wndows open iTunes and connect iPod, then Open explorer and serach for usb ports about your iPod and click on them to connecting
When iPod is NOT connected switch the power button on the shuffle mode and press buttons, it will be fix!
