My IPad 1st generation is also not recognized by iTunes 11 using windows 8 on my new PC. Apple confirmed there is a compatibility issue between the new released iTunes version to support windows 8 and iPad 1. There is a possibility this fix will be available on the next iTunes release but not guaranteed. Error (0xE8000012). Meanwhile for know you will better off connecting it to a windows7 OS. Hope that was helpful to you.

I had the problem that Itunes did not recognize my itouch or ipad since I got a new computer with Windows 8. Just finished a help session with HP. They had me uninstall ALL apple components including bonjour services - restart - and reinstall. It worked!
Previously I had tried uninstalling itunes but didn't get the rest of the Apple components.
