My iPod and iTunes refuse to connect to each other. When I plug my iPod in iTunes doesnt open automatically as it should. So when I open it a messege pops up saying 'This iPod cannot be used because the Apple Mobile Device service is not started.' *** does that mean?

Please help there are things I need to put on my iPod!

    Have you tried restarting the *Apple Mobile Device Service* as described in this Apple support document?
