I just experienced this same problem (windows just wont recognize the ipod at all) but I was surprised that the issue went away once the ipod was FULLY CHARGED to 100%.
So, if you are experiencing this same problem - I would recommend disconnecting the ipod from your PC, charging the battery completely to 100%, then try connecting it again.

Make sure you have iTunes installed on the computer you are using.Are you using the same type of computer as was first used to load music on? If you use a mac, the mac will reformat the ipod to mac format and then load the music on. If you are now using a PC (or vice versa) you may run into problems. You can also try resetting the ipod by holding Menu and Select buttons down for 10-15 seconds.
