    Is it your entire computer that can't detect the iPod, or just iTunes? Also, are you on a Mac or PC? I ran into a similar issue recently where the device showed up under My Computer (Windows PC) but not on iTunes. It ultimately boiled down to a USB conflict and also required a reinstall of iTunes. I found this support article from Apple to be beneficial in helping troubleshoot the problem.
