How do I have my iPod show up as an iPod and not a camera when I plug into my PC?
did Mike's answer solve your question? I know this was an unsolved question before and you essentially re-posted it. So it would be important to know whether any of the tips worked. Thanks in advance for your feedback!
If you are referring to the Windows notification this is normal behavior.
Apple has an knowledge article about disabling it
If you are experiencing problems as in it is not usable within iTunes:
a. download and (re)install the latest iTunes version
b. try re-detecting the iPod
1.open up the Device Manager
for Windows Vista/7 click on start and simply type "device manager" within the searchbox
for Windows XP go into the Control Panel, double-click on Systems, in the new window click on Hardware and then Device Manager
2. locate and select the detected "camera" device and click on deinstall
3. scan for new or changed hardware
