    Did you use the App to Modify your iPod in any way?

    Also, is it Jailbroken? If so, Which Firmware? Which Method?

    i had exactly this problem yesterday after installing the pc suite. wasnt sure if it was connected or not, but the ipod said no music or vids and iTunes said the ipod could not be recognised and i needed to restore.

    anyways, DONT RESTORE yet. heres what worked for me. SSH into the ipod and delete the iTunes_Control folder . yeah, all of it. its in /private/var/root/media/ i think on 1.1.2
    once its deleted plug the ipod back in and itunes will recognise it and ask you if you want to set it up again or do a backup. choose the backup option and all will be good. it will be recognised again as your ipod and you just need to re-sync all your music and videos.

    hope it works for you.

    Humm I had the same problem yesterday and I had my firmware on 1.1.1. I came back home and decided to upload some music from my dads computer so i figured I would use iphone PC suite because itunes resets your music libreary thing is that once I uploaded the music using this program all my other music wasn't being detected by my itouch. So this morning I erased everything

    and upgraded to 1.1.4 with all the apps and such then (with no music/video/or pics) on the itouch I used PC suite and I was surprised the music I uploaded was detected. Ok so a couple of hours ago I used itunes to upload some pictures and music (i should have stuck to PC suite) from my pops computer problem now is that I'm back to square one....music is inside my ipod but it's not being displayed...wack

    Anyone know anything I can do to fix this Maybe something like Touch roll but for music.
  9. well that was a long time ago. now im 2.0 or 1.2 and im ok without jailbreaking. It saves hassle tweaking my ipod every day. now im free to carry on with my life. anyways my point is dont ever us that stupid program. Stick to itunes. i'll jailbreak or whatever is going to happen when june comes around.

    ok well im using it and mine works fine apart from getting the music from my ipod to pc thats all but if its on your pcsuit select them all and download to pc it takes a while so leave it over night if your ipod says you still have them on and pc suit wnt let you see them but im affraid your gnna have to restore
