I just fixed this problem in a live chat few days ago.

You need to open device manager.
right click my computer, select manage, on the left side find device manager.

itouch - 5a7c8e4.jpg
Find the ipod from the list, click on update driver, dont look online,

Then select install from list.
You should find 2 or more drivers in this part, select the ipod USB driver name may be different, just don't select the still camera that it is now useing.

that should do it.

if theres no other driver available drop me a comment and Il get back to you

    if it still installs the still camera driver for it

    open up search

    type in

    note where that driver is stored.
    for example at c:\program files\apple\itunes\ (I just made that up its probably in another folder thats why we are Searching for it with the search tool)

    Then go to device manager select the ipod, update driver, manually(as above), have disk - go to the address where the usbaapl is stored and click ok it should find the driver, continue, it should install the driver, and you are done.

My computers has Windows 7 and i want to transfer my music from my iTouch. iTunes reads my ipos and the software it wont i keep clicking check for wont find.....PLEASE HELP

Try disabling your anti virus before connecting the itouch to your computer, most antivirus prevents driver installation from some external devices.

Fix Disabled ITouch that ITunes will not recognize

If your itouch reads "disabled connect to itunes" and shows the "locked" icon and your itunes will not even recognize the device and itunes says your itouch is locked and enter password, Here is what you do to restore your itouch: (you will lose all itouch contents but it is worth it as almost all say it is broken and worthless)
1. Turn off your itouch or ipod. Do not have charger / usb connected to ipod or itouch.
2. With device off, connect the charger end of the cable to the itouch / ipod but do not plug the usb into the computer.
3. Open Itunes
3. While holding down the menu button (and I mean keep holding it down), plug the usb into the computer.
4. Wait to see the new wonderful graphic on your device and computer screen that shows that your ipod / itouch is recognized.
Your itouch will start immediately restoring itself and you are ready to fill it up with wonderful images, photos and videos again!
So happy to share this tip. It saved me money and time.

I restored my itouch but itunes still wont recognize it

You may need to reset the driver
and then possibly update your itouch firmware to get it working again....
-Close any other open programs
-Unplug the iTouch and any other NON-ESSENTIAL USB devices from the computer (i.e. PRINTER, CAMERA, etc.)
-Open the iTUNES application and leave it on during this process, you may minimize the program if you'd like though!

-click on your Start Menu
go to Control Panel
click on System icon [computer w a check]
goto the tab that says Hardware
then the Device Manager button (alternatively, u can access the device manager by opening up the RUN command and typing in "CONTROL.EXE SYSTEM" and hit ENTER)
-Under DEVICE MANAGER, click on universal serial bus controlers
to expand the catagory
then you itouch should be in there
it may be under a name like "USB
Mass Storage Device"
then click [up/plus on the toolbar] and choose
the unistall driver option[computer with an X]
(don't worry, your data on the iTouch will be fine!)

-Next plug your itouch back in it should
recognize it
Now then, try to update the firmware through Apple

Music on Itouch shows up in Itunes but Itouch says No content add from Itunes

First you need to restart your itouch.
Then, plug it in to your computer and wait for iTunes to pop up.
Select a few songs from your library or some movies that you have and drag them to your iPod.
What I did was, dragged some movies on my itouch to the tv shows folder as soon as i did this everything popped back on to my screen
