As my title states I am new here. I want to first say thanks for all the info and methods I have tried so far to fix my touch unsuccessfully. My problem is windows gives an unable to recognize device/malfunction message when connecting. I have done everything up to a restore on the touch and windows still does not recognize it on more than one PC. I even tried uninstall/reinstall itunes out of desperation. Is my touch faulty or am I? Please help and thanks in advance.*edit* also noticed that the battery logo in the upper right hand corner just shows it is charging and not connected to PC logo. Not sure if that is even relevant but trying to get the details in.
