My 2nd generation iPod touch has always worked fine and synced with my computer without hassle, now all of a sudden it wont come up at all in iTunes, its not under devices or anything. iPod comes up with a charging symbol but computer doesnt see the iPod at all, anywhere. i have tried restarting iPod & computer numerous times, have re-installed iTunes twice, have restarted the ADMS, i've followed every single suggestion that ive seen and it still isnt working. Am extremely frustrated.

    Have you tried everything in these two articles:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1538

    Just be aware that reinstalling iTunes is not the same as uninstalling it, rebooting and reinstalling it. Also saying that you "followed every single suggestion that ive seen" is not that helpful since we do not know what you have seen.

    I have been experiencing this problem for a year now with my Touch. It seems to get worse after updating apps. Anyway - tonight is a perfect example of what I have to do to get a sync. This morning on the way out the door tried to sync and my Windows 7 PC does not see my touch. The Touch begins to charge but does not appear on the left hand column under Devices as it should. Plug - unplug. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.This usually works but not this morning. Come home (having loaded some podcasts on to my beautiful Droid phone) and start over. Plug - unplug. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Reboot PC. Nothing. Plug - unplug. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Reboot touch. NOthing. Plug - unplug. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. For some **** reason, it finally cathces and syncs after literally over an hour of attempts.

    This has become my POS. What good is it if it won't sync. When it craps I will go all Droid.

    I too am having issues. I have a 2nd generation Ipod. We have a new computer witch runs a 64 bit Windows 7. I've uninstalled, rebooted, re installed, gone through all of the suggestions and my ipod won't sync. Once in a blue moon it will but then the next time in won't. Also Itunes keeps freezing after updates. I've had it less than a year and they've already brought out a new Itouch. I'm getting so frustrated.

    I was having trouble getting my IPOD touch to show up in ITUNES and to SYNC. I went thru all the steps on Apple and several other webpages, re-installing, updating this and that, restore, recovery, all the conflict stuff and no luck. I finally disabled my wireless and that was the fix. I have to disable it everytime I want to use the IPOD, but it works everytime. Hope this helps someone.
