The third generation of iPods includes iPod Shuffle, iPod Touch and iPod Nano. Installing the latest software for each of these models involves the same process and requires the latest version of iTunes to perform. The 3rd generation iPod Touch uses the same iOS 4 operating system that the iPhone uses. You can download the latest version of iTunes from the Apple website for free. With iTunes, you can install the most up-to-date software on any 3rd generation iPod for free as well.
Download iTunes from the Apple website or check for the latest update by clicking "Help" at the top of the screen. Scroll down to "Check for Updates." Open iTunes either by clicking its icon in the Start menu or by connecting your iPod to your computer with the sync cable. This cable looks like an ordinary USB cable with a special attachment on the end that plug into your iPod. If you have lost your original cable, you will need to purchase a replacement. Any type of iPod sync cable will work, as long as it is compatible with your 3rd generation model. Wait for iTunes to update or restore your iPod automatically. Enter your iPod's name in the top field when you are prompted. Check the box next to "Automatically update songs on my iPod" if you want iTunes to sync your hard drive's playlist with your iPod every time you plug in your iPod. Select your iPod from the "Source" list on the left side of the screen if you need to update your software. This will take you to a screen with links to iPod software updates. Click on "Check for Update" to look for the most up-to-date iPod software, and click "Download" and "Install" to install the software. Do not unplug your iPod during installation. Check the box next to "Automatically copy photos to my iPod" to sync a photo folder on your hard drive with an iPod with a color screen. Choose the folder you wish to sync with your iPod from the "Synchronize photos from" menu. Click "Next" to move to the final screen. Click "Register My iPod" to send your personal information to Apple and then click "Finish" to end the installation. Your iPod will appear in the "Source" list on the left side of the screen.

Here's the details. 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.http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/

I had the same problem with my ipod touch. I soon realized itunes is too protected with their software. So i googled around and i found an Itunes alternative called Media Monkey. I absolutely love it. You could also use Winamp too which i als found good.
It is normal for it to take a while before it syncs. If you want it to be faster, make sure you save files to be synced with your Ipod on your hard disk. And make sure to download latest Itunes with quicktime and also update your ipod software.
If this still does not work. Try to uninstall Itunes and then re-install.
ok i think i know what you mean. i had the sme problem. first totally remove all quicktime and iTunes. then go back to apple.com and download iTunes. Quicktime should install with it. Or it should pop up saying if you want to.
Hey :), id be happy to help. First before you begin you must install Itunes on your Mac or Pc, To do this you must go to this link to get the installer for Itunes
http://www.apple.com/itunes/overview/ Ok, once you have installed Itunes on your computer ( and its up and running ), you must now plug in you Ipod to your computer ( with the usb cord that came with your Ipod ). Now once you have your Ipod plugged in and you have Itunes opened , your Ipod will show up in the sidebar of Itunes and a window will pop up asking for info like, what would you like to call your Ipodand etc. . Now after its done with setting up your Ipod, Itunes will automatically sync ( send ) the music/videos and etc, you have in your Itunes library to your Ipod. The syncing process will occurevery time you plug your ipod into your computer. Oh and to add music to your library through CD'sjust stick a CD inside your computer and open Itunes and the CD with show up in the side barand on the side of the screen select rip ( ripping a CD will send the songs to your Itunes library ).
