if you have I tune on your PC or Laptop then
connect your I pod with your pc or laptop. when you
connect your i pod then you can see small window restore or update then click on that . means you need to restore your I Pod .Make sure after this you could loose your data like music and others
1. Run "c:\WINDOWS\system32\devmgmt.msc" (this is the Device Manager),
this will need to be used later, but you'll need it quickly when you do.
2. Start i Tunes
3. Connect i Pod
4. Go to your i Pod Settings and select "Enable disk use"
5. A dialog box will pop up reminding you that you'll need to manually eject. Hit OK
6. Hit Apply to save changes to the i Pod
7. Quickly switch to Device Manager window and right-click on any item there and select "Scan for hardware changes"
8. Switch back to i Tunes, where you should have a nice, working i Pod!
ipods are only designed for itunes so windows shouldn't recognise media player, any way, the new software for ipod touches is greater, meaning your computer/windows media player wont recognise it, only itunes will.
You need to set your iPod to update manually, instead of syncing automatically when you plug it into the computer.
To do this, plug your iPod into your computer, and on the iPod info screen that pops up in iTunes when your iPod is connected, click "Manually Manage Files." You'll now have to click and drag your songs from your library to your iPod, but now you can also play songs on your computer directly from your iPod and delete songs from your library without deleting them from your iPod at the same time.
to "manually update ipod" if it is set to autosync then all tunes in the library which are registered as being on the pod will automatically update. each time you connect the pod the itunes sw will update the pod from the library.
when the pod is connected and auto sync is active if you delete a tune from the lib it will update the pod and delete the same tune.
it sounds like you might need to change some of the itunes settings. you open itunes and plug your pod in and see if it shows up on the left side of the window in with the playlists. if it doesn't then there is an interface problem which could be something as simple as the cable. if it does show up, then you click on that icon and you can change your pod settings.
I have done this with windows explorer and manually copying selection to the folder with itunes in it. Usually in your documents and settings/user/documents/mymusic folder or something similar. You can find out by checking the options or settings in Itunes and the folder it looks for.
