Sounds like a repair may be in order. Sometime you can simply have to restart your computer and open just iTunes (no other programs running) and then iTunes will see the iPod. If your computer can 'see' the iPod, then iTunes should see it as well.

stupid question i know but please make sure you hve downloaded the correct countries version of itunes - here in aust a lot of ppl accidentally download english version - it dont work. try uninstalling and reinstalling itunes if that doesnt work and try reseting unit itself - menu and centre button hold both down untill apple icon appears.......
You may have a non-Apple product, the knockoffs for the Nano look very similar. Here is a link that describes what to look for: http://reviews.ebay.com/FAKE-Apple-iPod-Nano-and-iPod-Shuffle-Exposed_W0QQugidZ10000000001518511
