    I tried searchinp suggesting it was plugged in. Also, it does not show up under the device manager.

    fortunatly i can still charge my ipod using some threads on this site and none of them seem to work. Some people were having a problem where the ipod was showing as a camera but not for me.

    Remember the 6 R's:
    1. Recharge- Charge your iPod.
    2. Reboot- Turn your iPod off then turn it back on.
    3. Reset your iPod- To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo.
    4. Remove- If iPod touch is not working as expected, it may be due to some of the content synced to it. Try selectively removing certain content that may be causing unexpected behavior such as songs, contacts, calendars, photos, videos, or podcasts. To remove content, connect iPod touch via USB and use iTunes to change the sync settings. Click on iPod touch in the Source list, and select each tab to change what content is synced and click Apply.
    5. Reset Settings- Tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset All
    If that does not resolve your issue, try erasing all settings.
    Tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Contents and Settings

    WARNING: Only do this if all else fails.
    6. Restore- Look here

"The device could not be written" or something like that. but when i plug it in to my old computer wich has 1.1 usb ports it works like a charm and let me do anything. i can sync and all. but WHY wont it work with my new computer wich has 2.0 usb ports ? WHY ?!?!? it makes no sense. And yes. My old computer has the same itunes as my new one. so it isent itunes that is the problem. not what i think anyways. Thx for help.

    It resets your settings which does not effect any of your media. You can change them back once you've done this.

    I hate threads like this

    no offence but i hate threads like this lol, this means that you didn't eject your ipod and pulled it out half way through sync, hard reboot, delete all settings, look up (^^^^^) and then re-plug it in, if not re-install itunes

    sorry, but i've tried that a couple of times. I even reinstalled itunes.

    so after about one hour of crying i decided to erase all the contents of my ipod. So i did, waited 2 hours and then my ipod got stuck on the boot logo. So i put it into restore mode, reinstalled the 2.0 firmware, jailbreaked, quickpwned to 2.2.1 and now it works!!!

    but this is a bitter sweet ending and now i will spend countless hours getting my things back...
