    In April this year, I encounted the same problem. Since I had been using iPod shuffle the first generation for almost 3 years, I thought maybe it had come to the end of its short life span. Then I bought the new generation iPod shuffle... The 1st generation was still in my drawer. Few days ago, I plugged it to the desktop and tried any luck. Then I found this website... PROBLEM SOLVED by following pulkachu's method! I dunno what to say, but GREAT THANKS! YOU'RE A GENIUS!

I found a way to solve this, you have to google for a program called ipod reset utility or, you can search here:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1238



Either way, install, follow the instrucions and you can probably save your ipod (note; I saved my ipod on a mac. Haven't tested transfering songs from my PC an this moment)
