I am not very good at troubleshooting iPods and I thought this would be the best place to find some help. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
The problem: I have an iPod Touch and iPod 5G that are not recognized by a Windows Computer. I have tried several troubleshooting steps and I will just outline everything step by step. Neither of the iPods show up in device manager, and when I try the "Run Diagnostics" in iTunes it shows that no iPod is attached. I've made sure the iPod service is running and tried stopping and restarting that also- but the iPod never shows up under Device Manager.
1. I have tried the 5R's several times. Each iPod has been reset 3 times and iTunes uninstalled and re-installed 3 times.
2. I have tried a total of 3 Windows Computers all with the same problem.
3. I did a factory restore on one of the computers just to troubleshoot an OS problem. The restore had no effect. It was a "destructive" restore meaning the disk was formatted- not just a repair.
4. When each of the iPods are connected, the screen lights up and the charging indicator appears.
6. I installed an add-on USB card in the computer I restored- but this made no difference.
7. I have tried restarting the computer with the iPod attached.
8. I am using the same USB cable for each iPod.
That is about all the detail I can think of. Typing this out makes me thing I need a new USB cable- but they are charging ok.
This problem has been going on for about 6-7 months but I finally have some time to try and get it fixed. It would be nice to have some new music on them.
Thanks for any help!

There are two separate drivers that need to be loaded on your PC. The 5G uses the older driver, and troubleshooting for it can be found in this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1538
The iPod touch/iPhone uses something called Apple Mobile Device Services to communicate with iTunes. This one is a bit different in that the touch/iPhone will not show up on the desktop as a device. For troubleshooting tips, see this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1567
Good luck and write back if your problems continue.
