    Plug it in. Wait ten minutes. It needs to install drivers for the device if ts the first time plugging it in. If you hear the "ding ding" then the computer has read it. Just wait for he drivers to be installed. Sometimes it has to reinstall for some reason.

    When you reinstalled iTunes, did you uninstall first? If you didn't, uninstall iTunes then install it again. It might be the Apple device manager program isn't working properly. This can only be fixed if iTunes is uninstalled before reinstalling it.

    I uninstalled it, and reinstalled it with the 64bit installer (yes, I have a 64bit computer!)
    I also uninstalled(or removed) Apple Usb driver and iPod Driver in the device manager! (I then pluged in my ipod and it reinstalled them)

    Maybe it's your computer, or the iPod itself. Have you tested it on other computers in your house? Or a different USB port? If it doesn't work on another computer it's the iPod. If it works on another computer it's your computer. If it works when you put it into a different USB port its the USB port. Also, if you are using a USB splitter, those don't work too well, they split the speed of one USB port so the process could take 4 times as long (a 10 minute wait to install drivers becomes 40). Do use a splitter.

    I'm not using a splinter, Ive tried different ports, and I know it works on my computer because I've used this computer before, I also forgot to add that my sister's ipod touch 2g wont come up ether!

    Also, connect your ipod.

    Then open itunes and go to help -> diagnostics.

    Follow steps and try to find out why exactly it wont detect.

    What you need to do is you need to go to task manager and see if the ipodhelper, ituneshelper, or something along those lines is running. Then, Go to services and make sure that ipodservice.exe is running. Restart the service, then plug your itouch back in and it should work.
