Howdy,

What does TeXShop's Console output look like when you run bibtex?
Does bibtex complain at all? (Others on the list are better at
diagnosing bibtex problems.)

Will the .bib file open correctly in BibDesk? Maybe making a change
there, saving the change and then changing back and saving will help.
Grasping at straws here.

Good Luck,
