Ok, I've been trying to fix this for 3 DAYS!!! But, I finally found the answer an hour ago and my Touch is sitting next to me happily syncing away. Rather than let someone else go through the pain I've been experiencing I thought I'd share how I fixed this.
After trying all the various suggestions (re-installing, another PC etc.), this is what I did:
When you get the 1604 error click 'ok' but keep your iPod plugged in
Go to 'Task Manager' and find the 'iTunes' process
Click 'End Process' which will terminate iTunes
(Remember, don't unplug your iPod!!)
Start up iTunes again
iTunes will then recognise the iPod
Click 'Restore' and you should be ok
Some of the other suggestions might also work for you but just thought I'd give you another option.
Good luck, I know how frustrasting this is!!
