Ive never had that problem. I would call the place you bought it from and ask to speak with someone who knows a lot about the itouch.

did you end the process in the task manager(its called something like applemobiledevicehelper)? try reopening itunes, or restarting your comp if its still not working. if restarting your comp doesnt work, try putting your ipod into recovery mode and then restoring it

how do you put it into recovery like how do you get into it

Hold the “power” and home buttons simultaneously until the apple logo appears. Let go of the “power” button, but keep the “home” button depressed. While still holding the “home” button, plug the iPod Touch (not iTouch) into your computer.

Download a fresh version of iTunes from Apple’s site and install.

Well now that that problem is settled, now you need help pronouncing the name of your device. It is iPod Touch, there is no iTouch, you don’t say iNano or iShuffle do you?
