Since it sounds like you have already updated itunes on your PC and since its new I am assuming you are running windows 10. Sometimes windows 10 does some wierd things with apple's itunes. Try this, connect your ipod to your PC but you can close itunes for now. Instead do the following: (its kind of a lot so if you do not feel comfortable doing this on your own please let me know and I can always remote into your pc)

  1. Open “Control Panel“.
  2. Select “Hardware and Sound“.
  3. Select “Devices and Printers“.
  4. Your iPhone or iPod should be displayed in the “Unspecified” section. Right-click it and select “Properties“.
  5. Select the “Hardware” tab, then click the “Properties” button.
  6. From the “General” tab, select the “Change settings” button.
  7. Select the “Driver” tab, then select “Update Driver“.
  8. Choose “Browse my computer for driver software“.
  9. Select “Browse…” then navigate to “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers“. If you don’t have this folder, check in “C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers“.
  10. Click “Next” > “Close.

Your Apple device should now be detected successfully within iTunes. So open itunes now and see if you can use your ipod and sync.
