I had this issue with the new iPhone 4S (iPod worked fine, but no iPhone sync in iTunes, although I could see it in My Computer). I found many suggested solutions from uninstall/reinstall iTunes Helper, check Bonjour service to ensure it's running, deleting the driver associated with the iPod... none of them worked. Then one day iTunes wanted to update... I let it... everything magically worked after that. Sorry if you've already tried the updater or a whole new install of the latest iTunes... sometimes the simplest explanation is the fix, so I had to throw it out there ;)
<p>When you download games on your iPod touch, they are
applications on your mobile device. When you connect your iPod Touch to a
computer with iTunes installed, the iPod synchronizes and shares data with the
computer. Once synchronized, you can back up your games and other applications
in the iTunes case something would happen to the data on your iPod Touch. After
the first sync, every time you touch your iPod to your computer, iTunes
automatically detects new applications and backs them up. <br />
<p>1. Launch the iTunes software on your computer. <br />
<p>2. Connect your iPod Touch into a USB port on your computer
using the cable supplied with the unit. <br />

<p>6. Click the box next to "Sync Apps", and attach
the sync as the pop-up window will appear. <br />
<p>7. Click the "Sync" button in the lower right
corner. This makes a backup of your iPod Touch games on the computer. <br />
How to Fix an iPod Touch Stuck in Recovery Mode With a Free Program An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues. Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit. The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version. Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods. In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore. When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process. You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.
Things You'll Need -Apple iTunes-USB cable
Instructions 1 Turn on your computer and open iTunes. If you are prompted to download any new iTunes updates, install the updates before proceeding. 2 Plug an iPod USB cable into your computer. Do not plug the other end into your iPod Touch yet. 3 Turn off your iPod Touch. If the iPod Touch is already shut down, skip this step. 4 Press and hold the Home button on your iPod Touch, and plug the other end of the USB cable into your iPod Touch. 5 Release the Home button after you see a white USB icon and the iTunes logo appear on your iPod Touch's screen. At this time, a pop-up should appear on your computer screen, explaining that the software has detected an iPod in Recovery Mode. 6 Click "OK." 7 Click on the iPod Touch from underneath the "Devices" heading on the left-hand side of your screen. 8 Click on the "Home" tab, and then click "Restore." Once it's restored, your iPod Touch goes out of Recovery Mode and you can start using it again. The restoration process takes a few minutes. Do not disconnect your iPod Touch until a prompt appears, letting you know the system restored successfully.
Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the computer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is disabled/locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord. Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. You can then go into the ipod and install a new pass code if you wish to. Hope this helps, Rob

1. Do a reset. Hold down the button on the tip of the iPod touch AND the one button at the bottom of the screen together for at least 10 seconds. The "Slide to unlock" slider will mementarily appear, keep pressing then the Apple logo will appear. Let the iPod re-start. It has now been re-set.
2. Do a 'Restore'. Connect your iPod with the cable that came with it to the USB port on your computer. In iTunes, click and (Restore).
3. Try re-installing iTunes on your computer then do a 'Restore'.
It seems like you will have to restore it which i have researched and
seems to be the only way, this will sadly erase all content so if you
are willing to put back your music/videos etc.. back, then go for it
you do this by
1) Connect the iPod Touch
2) Press and hold sleep+home until the device reboots.
3) Keep holding until that "please connect me to iTunes"-screen appears
4) iTunes says something about having detected a touch in recovery mode. Allow it to do its thing.
If you get the -18 error, proceed:
5) Disconnect the iPod Touch
6) Close iTunes
7) Reconnect the iPod Touch
8) iTunes launches and shows message as in step 4, but this time, the recovery will work
