have you tried updating / restoring the software
i should mention that ive never owned an ipod and that im kinda wing'n it here.
have you tried connecting it to another computer to see if the results are the same?
if it is recognized on another computer - take that time to update / restore the software / firmware AND THEN bring it back to your comp. with the newest version of itunes.
