I had a similar problem, but did not receive an error message. iTunes was detecting my iPod Nano with no problem, but when I plugged in the iTouch to that same USB port, my PC was not recognizing it. The PC would make the sound (like a bell?) when I plugged it in, but nothing would come up.

I tried the Reset, Restart, download latest itunes, nothing worked.

Finally, I found a comment someone made about uninstalling the USB port under Device Manager (Control Panel->System-> Hardware). The thing was that I had to actually have the Device Manager open, with all the USB ports listed (click on +), because the Apple device (!) only showed up for a few seconds, and I had to click on it real quick and select Uninstall. Then I unplugged the iTouch and restarted the computer. After that it worked just fine. Whew.
Thank you so much Kathy! It worked now I can download my songs! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kathy - you are a STAR!

Suddenly my Nano stopped showing up (same problem - USB device fail sound played when I connected it). Your comment _solved_ the problem!

Thank you.

check if the cable is correctly connected to the port.
check if you have the driver. install the driver then connect it again.
if ti still does not work, contact your local reseller, its may be that there is a problem with the iTouch.
