    I have discovered that this 'shuffle lookalike' is manufactured by a Chinese company called 'Bilstar Technology'. The model number is 'BM 314'.

    I have tried the Apple IPod shuffle type 2 restore software but it does not recognize this player.

    Does anybody have, or know the location of, a restore utilty for the BM314 MP3 player.

    I'm thinking I could perhaps get rid of the program by formatting the player and then install a generic mp3 program like WinAmp or similar that would run the unit safely. I am hesitant to do this until I am sure I can get it to work after I get rid of the built in program.

Although the MP3 player is cleary digital and not an CD disk, the authors managed to put an electronic version of a CD player on the disk. How can we reformat the whole player including the CD function??

I have a iPod shuffle 2nd gen. But haven't used for a long time. Now its not switching on. What to do?? :(

Batteries--especially rechargeable ones--do not hold their charge forever. The batteries power naturally drains, even if you don't use them. Just recharge your ipod, and it should work fine.

How to set up my new 1gb ipod shuffle, it hasnt come up with setup assistance option

If it's new (under 90 days old) give Apple a call. 1-800-275-2273.
If it's used, but new to you, make sure the iPod shows up in the left hand side of iTunes as a device.
If still no love, use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

Generic problem for all MP3 and Digital Media Players

it sounds like when you formated it you removed the basic programs to run the ipod,if you go onto apples website you can download the factory settings to your ipod and it should then work when you have put music back on.
