1GB iPod shuffle updated by Apple

Download combats iPod faults

Apple has released new software for the iPod shuffle.

Two versions of the software, called “iPod shuffle Reset Utility 1.0.1" are available, one for Mac, the other for Windows systems.

The software restores first-generation iPod shuffles to factory condition. The process completely erases all music and data on an iPod shuffle and reinstalls software version 1.1.5.

The software exists to help shuffle owners cope with a range of different faults that can appear in the music player, including one where pressing the Play button will cause amber and green LEDs to flash for a few seconds, after which the unit will not play any music, nor can you sync music to it from iTunes.
