The default software for all iPod devices is iTunes. You can download iTunes at iTunes is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 on Windows PCs and Mac OS X 10.4 or higher on Macs. Once installed, when you plug in your iPod it will appear on the right of the iTunes window.
There are also alternative software options for syncing iPods, but they often have some bugs and may not be able to sync everything. Here is a great article comparing alternate options if you'd like to take a long: I'm a fan of Songbird, but I haven't tried syncing an iPod with it.

I have a 5th generation iPod Nano. I've had it less than one year, and now whenever I plug it into my computer with the USB cord that came with it, my computer says "USB device not recognized" and that the...

  • Check system requirements. - iPod nano (5th generation) requires the following minimum versions of Windows: either Windows XP (Service Pack 3 or later), Vista or Windows 7. If you have one of these versions of Windows, verify that Windows is fully up to date by downloading and installing software updates from Microsoft. If you have Windows XP with Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows XP Service Pack 2, download and install Service Pack 3 using Windows Update.

  • iTunes online? - Confirm that iTunes has been downloaded and installed.

  • AMDS online? - iPod nano requires Apple Mobile Device Support (AMDS), which should be automatically installed with iTunes. To verify whether it is installed, click Start > Control Panel. Open the Add or Remove Programs control panel and verify that Apple Mobile Device Support is visible in the list of currently installed programs. If it is not, remove and reinstall iTunes.

  • Check USB connection. - Disconnect all USB devices from the system with the exception of the iPod nano and any USB keyboard and mouse. Then restart your computer. Verify that you are using a high-powered USB 2.0 port. Test with an alternate iPod USB cable if one is available.

  • AMDS - Re-verify that AMDS is running and installed.

  • iTunes usage - Remove and reinstall iTunes.
hope this helps

Ihave downloaded Itunes but my Ipodtouch still does not work qhat should i do

Depends on what version of iTunes you have. What exactly doesn't it do? Does it not charge, does it not sync files? Does iTunes not mount it? Does it mount on your Mac/Windows operating system?
You may want to check what firmware you are using as some of the features in the newer iTunes program will not work with the older iPods until you upgrade the firmware.
