I don't know about the iPod Touch and iPhone, but iPods are USB mass 
storage devices in Windows and so don't require any device drivers.

iTunes 4.x communicated with an iPod using DeviceIoControl(..., 
IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH, ...) and DeviceIoControl(..., 
IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT, ...), but only after doing a whole bunch 
of low-level calls using setupapi and other ioctls to find the device.

The 4.x versions of iTunes did install a driver for the CD burning 
functionality, however.

Good luck, but bear in mind that any hard work done on iTunes may need 
to re-done in 3-6 months time when the next version of iTunes comes out.
