I-Pod Works but no Sync and not recognized by Itunes


I Have a 5.G Video Ipod 80GB. The device works and plays music via Headphone and via Dock-Connector, also the battery is loading.

But when I connect the IPod to the computer with the original IPod cabel the device is not recognized, hence no Sync.

I tried different cables and computers, my IPhone is syncing with the same cable and computer, also the IPod Nano of my daughter, so I'm sure it's not the computer or the cables.

Any Idea?

Thank's a lot

Holger Lesch, I'd start looking at the dock connector for any bend, broken, or corroded pins. Also check for dirt, debris in the dock connector. you can clean it with some isopropyl alcohol and some compressed air. Use a non-metallic toothpick to clean it, do so gently and use a magnifier while working on it.
