It is an Ipod Touch 1st Gen. 8GB Version 3.1.2 jailbroken.
My ipod was suddenly unrecognizable by Windows and iTunes both so i tried a Reset/Format which it completed but then froze on reboot on the Apple logo and eventually shuts off automatically after 15-30 minutes.
I have tried recovery mode and DFU both and windows/iTunes still will not recognize the Ipod. Windows displays it as 'Unkown Device' in device manager.
I have also tried re installing itunes and all associated drivers/software and have tried every USB port on 3 different computers and 2 different ipod cables with no results.
Any help is appreciated

Have you tried one of the jailbreak tools to help kick it into dfu mode?
Or try Tinyumbrella's recovery boot.

I can get it into DFU mode fine, but windows still does not recognize it. And I have tried several Jailbreak tools, none of which will detect the ipod because windows wont.
I have not tried TinyUmbrella yet but i will attempt that quick and post my results
