A few questions for you.
Were all of your shapes in the same projection as the Itasca demo? If not, their coordinates may have been far outside of the extents of the map.
Do you have 300 shapefiles, meaning you have 300 layers you wish to display? If so, you might want to take a look at an alternate solution than the Itasca demo. For example (toots own horn) GeoMOOSE is designed to allow multiple mapfiles to be used within a single application. It makes the management of the large number of layers much more palatable. We also have a number of users that are at the same level of layer management as you are and could give more suggestions on how to best manage that data for use in a Web GIS.
