In device manager, it comes up under USB Controllers-> Apple Mobile Device USB Driver (with an exclamation point) or as Unknown Device (also with an exclamation point).
I have tried reinstalling the driver software (uninstall -> scan for new hardware)
I have tried updating the driver software manually from
C:\System\inf -code 43, windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers\usbaapl64.inf
the 4 drivers that appear (iPod USB, Mobile Device USB, Recovery (DFU), and Recovery (iBoot) give me code 10 errors (device cannot start).
I have tried the above in normal mode, DFU mode (blank screen), and recovery mode (connect to iTunes screen).
I have completely uninstalled all Apple products and reinstalled with all apps up to date.
I have tried the above on different computers with iTunes 10 and on different USB ports.
My iPod can be charged from a regular outlet.
I've followed the following:
As a last resort I will reset the iPod from Settings-> General ->Reset ->Erase All Content and Settings, but like I said, I can still download new apps and listen to my music from my iPod.
I'm running iOS 4.0, Windows 7.
