Ipod touch wont access Itunes

Hi I just got the ipod touch 2nd gen. 32gb. But when i plug it into my computer it does not show as device found and come up with a message in Itunes that says "The Ipod cannot be used because the Apple Mobile Device Service is not started" When I investigate it more it says that the device has started and then stopped because it doesn't have anything to do. Mac told me to uninstall windows and then reinstall it. Does anyone have some not so drastic advice, or an estimate of how much that would cost me to do through the geeksquad?

Re: Ipod touch wont access Itunes

That service is installed with iTunes and shouldn't be stopping itself if it's idle. I'd reinstall iTunes.
