This is how your iPod is intended to work. Apple has designed them so that you can only access them through iTunes. So don't worry that Windows doesn't see it, it's not supposed to.
If you want Windows to see it then you will have to use 3rd party software such as

Error (13) in itouch keeps showing when restoring, HELP!!!! how can i fix my itouch out of this freezed screen displaying a cd and usb port.....PLEASE!!!

From Apple Website 1. Restart your computer (yes, you have too)
2. plug in your ipod touch (it should have the usb cord and itunes picture on the screen)
3. open itunes.
4. itunes will recognize the ipod. just ignore the message, and then hold down the home and hold button (on the top) for about 10 seconds, and after you count to 10, release the top hold button, but still holding home.
5. itunes will pick up the ipod, and once it does, release home.
6. Now click restore, and everything should work fine.
(if problem persists, try turning off firewall, and close all other programs)

Can't sync ipod touch

If you haven't already, Uninstall your itunes and download a clean version.
install the clean version of itunes and try your ipod again.
you can get a clean version at

It appears your install is corrupt.
also have you updated your touch recently.
if it is jailbroken you should be able to update it to a newer version.
If your version is to old, it maynot be compatible with the newer versions of itunes.
They are constantly trying to thwart the jailbreak and unlocked ipod and iphones.

Check your version and update to something newer if the re-install of itunes doesn't help.

Itunes with vista

From what I understand, iTunes is not recognizing the iPod, because Windows does not recognize it. Choose to install the driver, set it to search for a driver in "C:\Windows". It should find a USB Mass Storage Driver, an iPod Driver, and a USBusEnumerator. Choose the iPod Driver, and if that doesnt work, try the USB Mass Storage Driver, and then the USBusEnumerator. If Vista gives you a memory error, reboot your computer and try the iPod Driver again.

Why does my iPod appears on my computer but not in iTunes?

Maybe radical but this worked for me.
My computer-select ipod,Right click and format disc (fat 32)
Once refomatted plug in to computer and start Itunes.
Click on Restore to factory settings, At the end of that you will need to plug it briefly into an ac outlet.
Reconnect ti computer and start Itunes.
Sync with library.
This worked for me after trying everything else I could fine failed.

My error when I ran diagnostics said "one or more sync tests failed."
