I have an 80GB iPod classic that is not being recognized by iTunes. Here's what happened:
- Ipod ran out of battery. I charged it on a speaker dock, and it opened with no memory, restored to default settings (no idea why)
- I tried to connect it to itunes, and it didn't work. My computer recognizes it as a removable drive and it indicated it was charging but itunes did not recognize a device was connected.
- I uninstalled and re-installed itunes (no change)
- I put the ipod in disk mode and connected it (no change)
- I ran an diagnostic in itunes, and theses were the results:

Note: It gave the real serial number, not sure if i should post it with that though.
Other things: My computer is a Dell, running windows 8.1; I have connected this ipod to this computer and updated it successfully before. There is no damage to the cord, or USB ports. I do not have access to another computer to test the ipod.
Thanks in advance for any advice as to how to proceed, I really want to be able to use my ipod again!
