    Well, here's the thing.. My PC regonizes my iPod as a Camera :/
    So it doesn't appear at iTunes.. I thought it would help if i resetted my iPod through the Settings on the iPod itself..

    that happened to me when i plugged my ipod into the computer at my library. all i had to do was turn it off and on again and it worked. but you probably did that so idk what to say.

    i guess restore? cause if you put it in restore mode then plug it in it might detect it im not sure.

    go into device manager, then usb devices, then hit update driver on "Apple iPod". Don't connect to Windows Update, choose a manual driver (basically going aganist what Windows recommends). There should be 2 drivers, camera and Apple iPod. Click the iPod one. It may not be signed, but continue anyway. Then it should work

    This happened to me too so I called Apple. All you have to do is on your PC, go to Start and Control Panel. Then click on the Printers icon. Then on the left hand side go to Scanners and Cameras. Click on that and then right click on your iPod Touch icon and go to Properties --> Advanced. And then he told me to take "No Action" on the Camera bit and he said after that it's easy to figure out and you should start having it be recognized by iTunes.
    But anyways since it didn't work on our PC we tried it on our Mac and of course it worked but now it's not recognized at all on the PC so he said we either have to restore it and risk having all the built-in programs (Stocks, Weather, Clock, etc) erased (complete bullsh*t in my opinion) or we'll probably just exchange it.
    Hope that helped.

    Sorry for raising this topic from the dead, but none of those solutions work for me. Whenever I right click and go to properties I get an error saying I can't access the properties.
