    Nothing will go wrong. The iPod touch isn't a medium to subliminally tranfer viruses.

    I'm pretty sure that the iPod Touch doesnt have a HDD since it is flash memory...
    but anyways i dont think anything will happen to it. and if so probably u will have to restore ur iPod

    No, a virus that was made specifically to target the Windows OS cannot jump into your OSX.(ipod)

    If you're still unsatisfied, you can always just do a restore.

    You won't get a worm or virus.

    That would mean someone has found a jailbreak method through iTunes or something.
    And you're on Windows, I'm guessing. So that was specifically made for Windows. Not iPhone.

    No it can't.

    iPod showing as a camera has absolutely nothing to do with this. It's completely normal.

    You won't get a virus on your ipod unless you put it there. the only way for your computer to read the ipod's filesystem is to go through itunes or ssh.
