try to restore your ipod. first put the ipod in DFU mode by holding the home and sleep button until the screen goes black, now let go of the power button and keep the home button depressed, after around 20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from
your computer as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes
should recognize it in DFU mode. iTunes should tell you it has detected a device that needs to be restored and if you follow the instructions in iTunes you should get a restored iPod. Note: everything on your ipod gets deleted.
<p>If you want to use Disk Management to partition and format
the iPod Touch, you must enable disk use on your iPod. By default, Apple iPod
products configured to work with Apple's iTunes and not as portable drives on
your computer. You can use iTunes on your hard drive mode to allow your iPod,
allowing the computer to deal with and recognize the iPod as a portable unit. <br />
<p>1. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable
for iPod. <br />
<p>2. Launch iTunes. Select your iPod from the
"Devices" from the iTunes browser. <br />
<p>3. Click on the "Summary" tab in the main iTunes
window to change the settings for your iPod. <br />
<p>4. Go to the bottom of the Settings window and check the
"Enable Disk Use". The computer recognizes the iPod Touch as a
portable disk. <br />
<p>5. Quit iTunes. Run the Disk Management and check the disk
devices connected to ensure that your iPod is displayed as a portable unit. <br />
1. First, Open up iTunes, plug in your iPod Touch/iPhone to the CPU's USB port. Turn on your CPU's speaker and make sure it is loud enough that you can hear it.
2. Hold down the Home button (top left for iPod Touch and top right for the iPhone with the screen facing you) and the Power button (located on the front bottom of your iPod Touch/iPhone) simutaneously, until the screen goes black and the device turns off. (past the red slider/slide to power off screen)
3. Now let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button. Your iPod Touch/iPhone should have turned off and the screen should not be on.
4. After around ~10-20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your CPU as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode.
5. After iTunes recognizes the iPod Touch/iPhone, let go of the Home button otherwise it will go into recovery mode and you will have to do the entire DFU process over again.
6. You will know when you have put your iPod Touch/iPhone correctly into DFU mode when the display is blank and that you do not have anything on your device. 7. Restore ipod using itunes
it is may be becoz the usb hub of your ipod have a probelm try to connect or plug it to the other computer if still it wont work then it is broken... sometimes this hub have lead malfunctions. though it beep but it does not recognize it... the cause of it was that few lines from the ipod hub are either short circuit or cut...
If nobody has figured out this problem or if anybody else is having the same problem I have a solution that could possibly work. I had the same problem so I right clicked My Computer and went to Properties. Click on the Hardware tab, and then click on Device Manager. Scroll down to Universal Serial Bus controllers look for anything that may have a yellow exclamation point. Mine said something like Apple Ipod Driver or something along those lines. Right click that and click Update Driver... Then click Next and it should update it for you and work fine. Hopefully this will help anybody that is having this problem.
