iPod shuffle 1st gen: wipe and reset

Apple - Support - Downloads - iPod shuffle Reset Utility 1.0.1 for Mac

I suspect it might be worth doing this for all 1st gen shuffles. Apple wouldn't have bothered releasing this unless there were some significantly hard to fix firmware problems.

Used this on my 1st gen shuffle but did nothing. The utility recognised the hardware but never restored the partition tables of which one is the software. Still have a dead iPod, but I admit a dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc, was not a smart move.
