Managed to fix it. Sort of. I went to jailbreakme.com from my ipod. Then after it finished itunes detected it. Please Register or Log in to view images but my computer still doesnt show my ipod when i checked 'my computer' anyone know how to fix that? Summary: Any iPod touch won't be detected by 'my computer' or iTunes. Computer still makes beeping noise when I connect iPod and iPod still gets charged. Is deteced by a program called copytrans or something like that. ----- So after updating itunes (i dunno if it stopped working right after i updated. may or may not have) itunes just wouldn't recognize it, but my computer still would. Then after putting it in recovery mode. I tried restoring it on my computer since itunes did detect the ipod at that point. BUT when i tried restoring i'd get an error which when i looked it up I think it was some hardware problem. So my little bro managed to restore it for me on his computer.But it still wouldn't be recognized by itunes. I don't know if the computer still detected at that time. So that was about a month ago. Now i can still charge it on my computer. It still makes the noise. but now my computer and itunes both don't detect my ipod. so now it's just a useless paperweight since it has nothing on it. I've tried reinstalling itunes, other usb ports, other cables, restarting the service. OH and i should mention that i borrowed my little bro's ipod and itunes and my computer wouldn't detect those either. I literally built this computer couple months back and it never gave me this trouble until about last month after the itunes update. computer/ipod info: firmware 3.1.3 windows 7 64-bit pro ipod touch 8gb itunes 9.2.1 PLEASE HELP D: ------------------double post merged------------------Sorry about the super long post. But I also used another program called copytrans or w/e and THAT detected my ipod touch.
