are you using a laptop or a desktop? usually when I use my desktop pc I have to plug it into the USB ports in the back of the computer. for some reason many of my devices are not detected on my front USB ports.

interesting. have you tried switching around and trying all the ports? maybe the cable is defective, that's the only other thing I can think of. Are you updated to the latest version of iTunes?

depending on how old the version is, it may not recognize the iPod Touch. I had to update iTunes when I got my iPhone for it to recognize it.

my iTunes isn't that behind i don't think. The safely remove hardwhere thing does not even come up when i plug it in, so im guessing my usb ports arent fast enough.

i have extra slots for more usb ports, do you know if i can buy one form like bestbuy or something?

If it's windows 2000, then that could also be your problem. iTunes doesn't support Win2k
