Ipod Reset Utility Flickers

For the first time in nearly 3 years i got a vote of conidence today as i finaly was able to get the ipod reset utitily to allow me to hit reset but after it does it flickers off and back to the desktop...

im trying to fix this 2nd gen shuffle that i love and see if i can restore it softwareically so that i can use it while working out but everything has come up like it aint going to be...

wondering if anyone gets the flicker or if thats what its supposed to do.

TIA

OS:Win XP
Ipod:Shuffle 2nd Gen
Itunes:7

anything else would be wonderfull

Does iTunes recognize the Shuffle? Just use the iTunes Restore option. How old is your iTunes? If you're using a version that doesn't have the Restore option, the you definitely need to update your iTunes. If you have it, then just plug in your Shuffle, click on the name of your Shuffle in iTunes on the left hand side, then click 'Settings' on the top center of page, then just click the 'Restore' button right under the 'Check for Update' button near the center of the page.

If iTunes & your computer doesn't detect it, does it have any lights? Do you get any message when you connect it?

I would definitely get the latest iTunes, then I would try a different usb port, like the back ones that are high power. As long as you can get iTunes to recognize the Shuffle, then you can try the 'Restore' option and hopefully it will work for you. If your getting lights for only half a second, try leaving the Shuffle connected to the computer for about an hour to make sure the battery charges just enough for iTunes to recognize it. If this still doesn't work, I would try a new cable, then another computer. If still nothing, then the battery may be bad. But try the newer iTunes, the different usb, charging longer, and the restore, hopefully that will do the trick.
