Many of you may have experienced problems with iTunes NOT recognizing, and for the first time it also happened to me, so here are some tips you can use to make iTunes recognize it: 1. Uninstall lilUSB, that program happens to be causing problems with USB devices. 2. Repair iTunes(control panel). 3. Uninstall and reinstall iTunes. 4. Make sure iPodservice.exe is enabled. 5. Make sure Apple Mobile Device Support is enabled. These are some of the things i tried and eventually made iTunes recognize my iPod, if you have another solution, post it and if it's good I'll add it to the list(with credit).
