I've been trying to fix my own iPod for a while. Different problem but I think this might help.
Ultimately, if your computer HAS been able to recognise your iPod at one point, it's a driver problem.
You didn't specify which OS you're using, but I'll assume it's Vista.
This might help you:
Download the new version of iTunes
Save it somewhere on your computer
UnZip the program using something like WinRAR or The Extractor
In the folder, locate Apple Mobile Device and double click it
Remove the program
Restart your computer
Re-install the program
Connect your iPod
Things should be working now. If not:
Type Run in the search field
Click OK if you are get a prompt
Scroll to Universal Serial Buses and look for "Apple iPod" or "Apple Mobile Device USB" or something to that effect. (If it's not there it may be in Imaging Devices or Portable Devices)
Click the Driver tab
Click Driver Details
Tell me what you see.
Thanks Sinking Higher,
I already fixed mine, what I did was I just turned off my PC and let it rest for 1-2hours and the after that I connected my iPod and it worked again. According to what I read, that the power in the USB is too low that it cannot support the current needed by iPod. I'm okay now, I really appreciate the help. Thank you for posting.
