Cool iPod Shuffle 1st-gen FIX released by Apple

It's about bloody time...

Apple iPod shuffle Reset - 1.0
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/31122

The info posted on VersionTracker is below, but be sure to read Apple's Support Note before using this utility!
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303979

Product Description:

The iPod shuffle Reset Utility restores First Generation iPod shuffle. The restore process completely erases all music and data on iPod shuffle and reinstalls software version 1.1.4. iPod shuffle Reset Utility is only for First Generation 512MB and 1GB iPod shuffle. Any other iPod, including Second Generation iPod shuffle is not supported.

Use the iPod shuffle Reset Utility to fix the following issues:

* With the iPod shuffle switched on, pressing the Play button will cause amber and green LEDs to flash for a few seconds, and the unit will not play any music, nor can you sync music to it from iTunes.

* On a Windows PC, iPod shuffle will appear in My Computer as a “Removable Disk,” however the iPod shuffle volume will not mount correctly. The unit is listed in Device Manager under “Disk Drives” as “Apple iPod USB Device.”

* On a Mac, the unit will only be recognized in Apple System Profiler under Hardware -> USB and will not appear or mount in the Finder.

* When attempting to restore, the unit may not be recognized at all. However, if it is recognized, the restore may fail with an error dialog “Firmware update failure. Disk write error” or another error. It may take 3 restore attempts before the error appears. NOTE: iPod shuffle may take several minutes to be recognized.

Product Requirements:

- Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later
- First Generation 512MB and 1GB iPod shuffle
FINALLY. Now... where the heck did I toss that Shuffle....?

Thanks for posting that! I wouldn't have found out about the fix if you hadn't written it up.

It didn't fix the blinking lights of death when I tried the reset utility on my iBook, but it worked on one of the Windows boxes at work. My Shuffle is alive!

Glad it worked for you - I won't be able to try it on my dead Shuffle until I get back to Canada in December.... Ah, well, at least I have my Nano for company!

I wasn't having any of the problems listed in the fix but my 1st gen refurb shuffle didn't work out of the box (song would start and then get really garbled). Ran the fix and the shuffle works great now.

He might have the world's slowest dial-up connection. Remember to watch for a response in 2014.

You could always follow the link on the original Apple document, that tells Windows users where to click.
