Ipod 160Go not recognized by itunes or even pc

2015-10-11 | Default

Hi,
I bought an ipod 160Go in October 2009.
However I currently have a big problem with it : a few days ago, while my ipod was plugged Windows began to make the sound like if an USB device was keeping being plugged/unplugged. After a quick check I finally understood it was because of the ipod. Indeed it was keeping connecting/disconnecting without any action of my own. I immediately unplugged it, and by seeking on these boards I saw that it was advised to reset it. I did it, and it worked well. However the real problem arrived : my ipod isn't recognized by my pc any more. Not even by itunes. Even by Windows. Nothing happens when I plug it, except that the screen lights itself (like if I was touching the wheel), and I can still use the ipod while the cable is plugged.
Everything was up-to-date. I reset it, tried to put in in Disk mode, I reinstalled itunes... Nothing worked so far.
Thanks for any help! And for having read this far. Sorry if my English sounds broken, it isn't my mother language. However do not hesitate to point out obvious mistakes!
PS: I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or not, so I put this here : last week I had a surprise when I plugged it : itunes said it was needed to be restore in order to work. It was the first time it ever happened to me, and everything was working fine before, but well, if itunes said it, it must be true! It worked perfectly fine, until the problem mentioned above.

I figured this out.
I needed a charge and sync cable in order for the iPod to be reconized by any USB port on the computer.
