When you plug an iPod Touch or an iPhone in the computer sees it as a digital camera. In order to load files or to see what is on it, you need to open iTunes. If the player is not recognised in iTunes you may need to restore it. If that is the case, press and hold the power button on top and the home button at the bottom of the screen till it shows the apple, then release the power button but keep holding the home button till you see the screen with the iPod cable and the CD. Then open iTunes and connect the iPod. It will say it detected an iPod in recovery mode. At that point it will restore the iPod's firmware and reset it to factory condition.

Feel free to let me know if you have any more questions.

Dear letsneuk, (I hope your not Dutch/Flemish :] )
iPhone's/iPod Touches DO NOT work as an external (flash) drive wich Windows sometimes detects as camera's.
Download iTunes instead, to sync your music etc. here:
Good luck. And kind regards, FriskYR.

Open iTunes (without iPod connected). Create a new playlist and copy songs you want on your iPod into that list. Next connect your iPod. Once iTunes recognizes your iPod then go to the music tab and click on 'sync playlist only' and chose the new playlist that you created. Click sync. Only the songs in your new playlist should be copied to your iPod.

Have you tried restoring the iPod yet?
Use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

Your iPod touch should not appear in my computer. Does it appear in iTunes? If so, then that is all that you need to sync. If iTunes does not open automatically, click on it to open it. you should see your iPod there. Hope that that helps.
