    My ipod got screwed and it has the connect to itunes sign on my ipod like in DFU mode, but my PC just won't read it. nothing at all. When I connect it the sign just stays there. Sad case.

    Solutions?

    Try a different USB port, or reinstall iTunes

    We've recommended the deletion and subsequent re-installation of the Apple Mobile Device components under Mac OS X and resetting the service under Windows for a variety of iPhone issues, including sync problems, problems recognizing the device, problems restoring, and more.

    Apple has now echoed this advice in a Knowledge Base document (#306637) specifically for the issue where the iPhone or iPod Touch is not recognized by the host computer. This can be accomplished by the following platform-specifc processes (Apple's article mentions only Mac OS X):

    Mac OS X

    Delete the following files:

    * /System/Library/Extensions/AppleMobileDevice.kext
    * /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DeviceLink.framework
    * /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework
    * /Library/Receipts/AppleMobileDeviceSupport.pkg

    then re-installing the latest version of iTunes.

    Windows XP

    * Quit iTunes and disconnect the iPhone
    * Go to the Start menu, thenthe Control Panel and open Administrative Tools, then Services.
    * Select "Apple Mobile Device" then "Stop the service."
    * After it is stopped, click "Start the service."
    * Connect the iPhone again, launch iTunes and check for recognition.

    Windows Vista

    * Quit iTunes and disconnect the iPhone
    * Go to "Start," then search for "Services"
    * In Programs, click "Services".
    * Select "Apple Mobile Device" then "Stop the service."
    * After it is stopped, click "Start the service."
    * Connect the iPhone again, launch iTunes and check for recognition.

    This took me 8 hours to find this site lol and it had paid off lol =)

    I'm thinking it may be a hardware problem, because it will read my ipod 2g but not my 1g so it can read ipods.
