    You could have just named it and everything would have been okay. But that's kinda weird...

    I mean i last night i restored my installed iTunes, and restored my friends ipod, after it finished it asked me to name my friends ipod

    So i just unplug his iPod and plug mine in, it says that the usb port reconized it but itunes says that nothing was added. i ran diagnostics and nothing will appear for the ipod / iphone.

    try uninstalling and then readding itunes?

    btw you do know that you can rename your ipod as many times as you want?
