itunes is not recognizing ipod after upgrading to windows 8. Have uninstalled & reinstalled itunes without any improvement.
What if you connect the iPod in Disk Mode?
Putting iPod into Disk Mode
No further forward I'm afraid & subsequently found out having the same issue with trying to connect an ipad.
Not unusual as Apple has not updated iTunes to have support for Windows 8. An update should be available soon.
