Your ipod may be corrupted and will need to be wiped and restored.
First of all try another lead to connect your ipod to pc.
Also look inside bottom of ipod to check no bent pins in ipod dock.
Also reinstall itunes incase of program corruption.
If still not working you will have to put ipod in disk mode.
Switch ipod off then switch hold button on and off then hold down centre putton and bottom pause button until TICK appears.You are in Disk mode.
Go to file explorer and right click your ipod if shown,Chose FORMAT then chose restore device defaults and restore. Once formatted open itunes and connect ipod with good lead.Ipod can now be restored from backup or a clean restore can be done
You may reset or restore your iPod for a try, this can fix many general iPod problems. Or you may take a look at this iPod FAQ, it's informative.
If it doesn't work, you can contact Apple technical support for help.
You state that after doing a restore, all data is deleted. This would require that you put data on your iPod before the restore. But if every time you connect your iPod, iTunes cannot read your iPod, how are you putting data on your iPod?
Theres a few things you can do. Sounds like to me......1. remove ipod support and itunes and reinstall it. completely turn the computer off after each process. Then plug it in and let itunes recognize it, and see if it works. Before you do this try changing your settings. You can go and change settings to default. If that doesnt work COMPLETELY restore your ipod and reinstall ipod support and itunes and that will work for sure.
