I was facing the same issue after upgrading to Windows 8.1. You need to remove EVERYTHING that has anything to do with iTunes to fix this problem. Make sure to remove Apple mobile device support, bonjour, Apple software update, Apple application support and of course iTunes. This article will help you to remove everything: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1923

Now re-install the iTunes software and you’re good to go. I hope it helps.

I am experiencing the same issue, but hesitate to totally uninstall Itunes since I have nearly 1000 manually added Album Covers for albums created by converting my vinyl records to mp3's.

Anyone know how to retain that customization?

I have done this 5 times and its still not working. The apple "genius" people have tried as well and the driver still wont install properly. Any ideas on how to fix this before I go spend a fortune on computer techs?

Stupid. I have the same problem. Installed itunes for the first time then plugged in the brand new ipod and got the same problem. So, the reinstall software, reboot computer crap is incompetent tshooting. If this does work which I will not try then I am returning the ipod.

It worked by uninstalling ALL Apple programs and components. Thank you! I had uninstalled and re-installed iTunes several times, without success. However, it worked like a charm after uninstalling Bonjour and all other Apple programs and then re-installing iTunes.

It worked for me as well. Win 8.1 with the same troubles of iPod & iPod Nano did not connect to the item, but succeeded to connect to the computer. Fulfill the instruction above worked like a magic. I'm sorry I didn't find this article before spending 3 hours for nothing.

Thanks

It works................except! If you have 2 ipod devices then it will recognize one but not the other. You have to go to the control panel and update the ipod device driver and reboot each time you switch ipods.
