iPod Classic 80 Gb


Recently updated iTunes. When I attempted to connect my iPod to download some new music my computer did not recognize my iPod.  I tried updating the drivers, reinstalling iTunes and putting the iPod in disk mode. After reinstalling iTunes for the third time and playing with the drivers my iPod froze and when it was updating my data was erased.  Luckely I had manually backed my iPod up onto my desktop.  Now after reformatting my iPod and setting it back to the factory settings I still am unable to connect my iPod with iTunes.  I am also unable to copy my data back onto my iPod.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you!

iPod classic, Windows 7, Windows 7 64 bit
