    I get this every time I plug in my iPod. I found in another thread that iTunes will detect it if you reboot the iPod while connected, and that works, but I have to reboot it every single time I connect it, which gets very annoying.

    From The iPhone Wiki:

    0xE8000065
    sn0wbreeze custom firmware error on USB connection. Unplug the device, reboot it, and plug it in again.

    I have never used sn0wbreeze or custom firmwares, and as I said I can reboot it to connect once, but after disconnect and reconnect I have to reboot again which is annoying.

    I have tried multiple USB cables and ports...thats not the problem.

    Well, the only option I can see is to put it into recovery or DFU mode and restore..

    I'm pretty sure it's a problem with the computer or iTunes...and no I don't have libusb. Should I?

    No, I just know that libusb can cause some really weird problems for things plugged into usb ports, including iOS devices. That definitely seems like it's a problem with the iPod rather than the computer or iTunes. Have you tried it with someone else's iPod?
