Hard reset an Ipod shuffle

    • Thread Starter

    I'm selling my Ipod shuffle but need to factory reset it before dispatching to the new buyer.

    Been advised to follow this method but I've downloaded the latest Itunes but the above steps don't appear at all. I can't find the summary page and right click on my Ipod only brings up 'Eject/Transfer Warnings'. I'm using Windows 10 if that helps identifying the ITunes version.

    Help appreciated!

    Plug the Shuffle into your computer.
    Select the icon for the shuffle. It should be listed toward the upper-left corner of the iTunes window.
    Choose “Summary” in the left pane.
    Select “Restore iPod…“.
