I just hooked up a rarely used iPod Nano Shuffle (v1.2; Model: MC525LL) to my very old, updated Windows XP Pro. SP3 from someone who didn't want it. However, Windows doesn't recognize it (unknown device). iPod Nano Shuffle does turn on when connected. I assume it is charging (never owned one before)?


Is it really required to install and use iTunes for it to work even though I don't want to use iTunes and want to use a third party software? seems to say I need to install iTunes? Is there not a separate driver only?


Thank you in advance.
