My IPod touch is hooked up to my windows laptop. I open iTunes and it see's my IPod, and says it's synching, but it really isn't. I have passed all the diagnostic tests, tried rebooting, hooking up to different ports. Nothing! Interestingly "My Computer" doesn't see it as an accessory in the E ports.
I also have a Nano, and that one has no problems connecting, synching, and showing up in "E". The ITouch is the problem device.
