I think the problem your having is that Apple has once again resisted support for anything but i-Tunes and changed the way the database works. Amarok or whatever else is trying to write a database that is probably just in a different place on the IPod itself. I would think yoiu just need to give it some time for someone to write a new ipod driver.

1. Connect the MP3 player into different USB port of the computer and make sure that the computer could detect it. 2. If the computer does not detect it, use another computer. 3. Make sure that you have enough memory space in your MP3 player so that you could download songs. 4. Download songs that has .mp3 file format 5. Try different USB cable to isolate the problem.
NOTE: iPod is using different different file format, make sure that your MP3 supports that file format. If not, those songs will notplay in you MP3.
DON"T TURN IT ON AGAIN UNTIL YOU KNOW IT IS COMPLETELY DRIED OUT!!!!
Sometime electroncis can be salvaged if they are not turned on again until after they are dry.
The electrolytes...(sugars, salts) can cause the electric current flowing through the device to arc accross connections causing a short. It may be too late to save your iTouch, but for the future if you can dry out the device before trying to turn it on again with a blow dryer or napkins or whatever you have handy it may save it.
Try drying it out and then turning it back on...it may or may not work as the damage may have been done already.
try to reformat it again. Mine did the same thing after i did it. if that doesnt work, plug your mp3 player into your computer and put a single song on there. Then unplug your ipod, change the battery, and it should work.
If you are using windows media player, whatever is on your sync lists will be added to you ilo and what is on your ilo that is not on your synch list will be deleted from your ilo, when you udate your sync.
For example say on your ilo you have only one album from oh I don't know lets say....Beefheart and on your synch list you have the Monkey's greatest hits and five different re-mixes of the Macerana. When you sync up, the WMP should take the Beefheart off you ilo and put on the Monkey's and the remixes. Despite your wierd taste in music, it should do all this for you.
Think of your ilo as just a player and the WMP as the program that takes the music on and off the ilo.
this player shipped with a defect in its software, and ILO knows about it, but wont admit it. they gave me a program that fixes it, and told me not to share it. yeah Fkn rite. anyway, im trying to FIND that prog cuz mines broken again. at any rate, whatever you do, DO NOT attempt to format the device in windows. you WILLL make it worse! you need the little program that rewrites the device back to factory. lets all go look for it. if i dont post again and u can't find it, CALL ILO. they will email it to you.
Probably an issue with the usb port. I would try using the ones in the back, even though it's a pain.
This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.
Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
