Did you click the first link in the cluster of links at the bottom of that article? If you did then you will notice that you would be taken to iPod shows up in Windows but not in iTunes and then could be taken to this article if that was not the solution: Windows confuses iPod with network drive or hard drive and may keep iPod from mounting or songs may seem to disappear. If you did not go through this please do so. When articles are provided there are often solutions within solutions available. You need to try all solutions possible if you want to reasonable find a possible fix to your issue.
my 4gb ipod nano is not seen in itunes so i cannot
restore it back to factory settings. I have done the
5r's resetting it putting it in disk mode,
reinstalling itunes everything. I downloaded ipod
updater software but it says that I MUST use itunes
and stops running. I cannot restore my ipod without
using itunes but itunes dosent see it. My ipod is
found in my computer and the ipod itself seems to be
working but I think the ipod lost some files itself.
How do I get around restoring it??!!! i tried using
my sons ipod and itunes sees it no problem and works
great. also when i plug my ipod in itunes starts
but never shows the ipod in devices.

If I'm not mistaken, one of the links within the links of the articles shown touches on virus scan issues. If not, you can search support or this forum and will find discussions or articles that address this issue. Can't recall off of the top of my head but I believe Norton may be one of the virus scans discussed.
Are your USB drivers up-to-date? Also, if they are, you could try reinstalling them.
See this article for details:
iPod is not recognized properly by computer when USB drivers are not installed properly or are out of date
