    iPod not showing in iTunes

    iTunes won't recognise my iPod, but it shows up in Computer. I've tried everything on the apple site, nothing worked. Any suggestions?

    I don't know if you checked that article out or not but I referred to that when I had a similar issue with my iPhone 4S after upgrading to Windows 8. If you did, depending on your iPod model (i.e. Touch); try booting it in DFU Mode and iTunes should recognize it. If that doesn't work, try reinstalling iTunes and make sure the Apple drivers install correctly on your computer as they allow your iPod to both be recognized by your computer and iTunes.

    I also refuse to pay $35 just to talk to someone on the phone about it.

    Did you buy refurbished or used? Either or, you should be able to contact Customer Support because they don't charge you for the phone call as far as I'm aware.

    Used. That's why they are charging me I think. But I'm looking into alternatives other than iTunes.

    You could try out CopyTrans. I used that for a while. Otherwise, if you get foobar2k you can get an iPod plugin for managing its contents. I don't think that would help if iTunes doesn't recognize it, but you could try.

    I tried copytrans but it needed the ipods files on it, the only way to get them is if the iPod connects to iTunes... But, miraculously it connected to iTunes so i guess I can lock this thread. Thanks for the suggestions.
