    Default USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED. unknown consistent problem.

    Okay, i'm looking for support of a technical issue I have been having.
    I own an iPod Touch. Bought in January.
    Thing is, it's been jailbroken from around March. I had a couple of problems (at one point I thought it was impossible to fix) amd still overcame them.

    This past week, starting Thursday night, I plugged my iTouch into my laptop to charge, as usual. I got a pop-up message from windows saying "USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED. windows has detected a device has malfunctioned, etc.)
    I was very confused, reconnected many times, with no luck.

    I system restored, reinstalled itunes, tried different usb ports, no luck.
    I was away from home until today, but had laptop and ipod. At one point it actually connected. charged, synced, the lot. Next time plugged in, unrecognized. Again. Couldnt restore due to not having internet access.

    Connected again, a night later.
    Got home today, connected as soon as plugged in. I restored (to non-jailbroken firmware as I assumed that was the problem )
    restored but nothing happened, ever since it hasn't been recognized again.

    I am very confused as it apparently wasn't the jailbroken firmware causing this? Please give me some insight on wether it is my laptop, ipod, or usb ports to blame??

    I checked Apple and I have warranty. Should I take it to an apple store and tell them it isn't being recognized?? (its on original firmware, so no worries about it being jailbroken) Do you think they will help me? Or would there have to be a repair? If so, what prices would they be asking for??

    Please help, It's leaving me very confused and tired as I have being trying many times for the past days to figure out what is wrong

    Default Its a hardware problem

    Despite Apple Support's insistance, if you google this problem you'll find many people who can not synch their iphone, and also ipods, to their non-Mac PC. I've been researching this for months, and I suspect that the problem is actually due to variation in performance of the USB port voltage regulation. Has anyone looked at the voltage of the USB ports involved? Does anyone know how to go about checking USB port voltage, or how to regulate it? Would a PCMCIA USB card get around a problem with a USB voltage regulator on the motherboard?

    Couldn't this whole problem be fixed by making charging from the USB port optional? Could this be done via software? Would Apple care enough about their customers without Macs to look into this? Most of the reports on this problem are iphone and ipod specific. All other USB devices continue to work on the ports. The arrogant default response of "Get a Mac." is useless and insulting, especially for those of us that can't afford a Mac.
