When I connect my iPod (brand new) and run iTunes I received the following message: "iTunes has detected an iPod that appears to be corrupted. You may need to restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes. You may also try disconnecting and reconnecting the iPod." I then tried to restore my iPod to factory settings but could not do so. I performed all of the solutions per Apple Solutions but none worked (reinstalling latest version of iTunes, changing letter drive, checking USB port, etc.). I then took my iPod to a friend's computer, connected and was able to restore it. I could have easily synced the iPod to my friend's computer. This makes me think there is nothing wrong with the iPod, but rather something is wrong with windows xp or my iPod setting in windows xp. Thoughts?
