Hi, and welcome to the community!
Have you trie running Spotify desktop as an administrator?
Make sure Spotify mobile (provided it is a touch. As per Matts post, it would be helpful if we knew which model you have!) is not in offline mode and in the foreground.
I sometimes find that disabling my AV firewall or my AV altogether can fix the problem, as sometimes antivirus softwares stop the 2 from connecting. Alternatively, you can create a TCP exception for Spotify.exe in the firewall.

>>If you don't have your computer hooked to a WiFi network, then I apologize since that's currently the only way the Spotify iOS app can sync with your computer's local files.
Technically that's incorrect, as you can connect your iPhone/iPod touch via the Apple USB they give you, and it will appear in devices. Android is the one where it is only possible to sync local files via the same wifi network.

Hello to all,
I have the same problem.
I have the latest iPod nano, and I'm trying to connect to Spotify through USB.
Itunes is not running.
But nothing shows un in "devices".
In advance, thank you for your help!

If it uses the lightning connector (6th/7th gen device) then it won't work with Spotify. As spotify would only synch local files anyway to a nano, you may as well stay with itunes though.

Oh, no. I just bought a 7th generation ipod nano specifically to work with Spotify. Should I return it or is there a work around? Right now it doesn't show up under "devices" when I go into Spotify on my cmputer when I try to synch.
