A friend has the very first edition of the iPod Shuffle.  We think the battery is dead or there's something else wrong but it does not show up when we plug it into our laptops.

He has alot of music and other data stored on it.  How can we retrieve it?

    is it just not recognized by computers or doesn't turn on even?
    if there is a problem with the battery, why don't you go and get it replaced?
    otherwise, you will have to use an iPod data recovery program to retrieve the data

    If you can't find a solution here, then call a reputable company and see if they can recover it (if the music and data is important).  One suggestion is the Pod Drop. There web addy is .
