    It works fine on my sons laptop but I just cannot get it work on my pc, I have uninstalled everything 4 times but to no avail, APPLE support told me to restore the Touch from itunes, I dont think they quite understood the problem, Diagnostics in itunes crashes everytime I try it. Any suggestions other than nick my kids laptop.

    Try reinstalling iTunes, it seems to fix the problem most of the time.

    So far I have tried

    Upgrading Itunes from 7.5 to 7.6
    I have upgraded touch from 1.12 to 1.13 (on kids laptop)
    I have uninstalled itunes (5 times) and reinstalled
    I have removed Apple mobile device reinstalled (several versions)
    I have cleaned the registry of APPLE,IPOD & Itunes entries unistalled all apple software and reinstalled
    I have tried to downgrade to 1.1.1 to no avail
    I have shouted at it

    ALL HAVE FAILED MISERABLY

    might just ask for a new Touch

    I Phone Detected!

    I have the same problem. I got I Tunes 7.5 from filehippo.com. Totally remove 7.6( This is your problem) and re-install 7.5. It should work, but you wont have the new apps. I hope someone figures this out soon.
