i don't think the ipod can see the tunes unless they are copied onto it using itunes or similar (msc mode). sadly, copying over in explorer (as if it was a flash disk in ums mode), which is nice and simple, isn't recognised by the player. has the drive formatted itself on connection i have a vague recollection that the wife's ipod mini needed to be formatted before it would connect properly to itunes.
i suppose you could also try reinstalling itunes, or looking for the most recent versions of the software on the apple website. sorry to not be of any more help than that, maybe someone else will have specific experience of the shuffle units.

trout are freshwater fish and have underwater weapons
trout are very valuable and immensely powerful
