    I'm running windows xp home edition, Service pack 3


    Okay, so I downloaded the 4.0 update. All's good. Was backing up, so I had dinner. When I came back down, the backup was done, and on my screen was the "Found New Hardware Wizard". I thought, 'Oh god, this isn't supposed to happen'. So I pressed, search automatically, it didn't find any software, so I pressed finish. But when I did that, iTunes got rid of the "preparing iPod for update", and just closed everything to do with my restore.

    The problem that I have is that my iPod touch has the "connect to itunes screen", but when I connect to iTunes, it doesn't appear. No interaction at all. But the "Found New Hardware Wizard", comes up everytime.

    Any help at all? Please? Oh yeah, I jailbroke once during 3.1.3, restored it.

    I'm thinking that I could pick the restore firmware that was saved onto my computer? If so, could someone give me step by step how to find that software, thanks.

    Go to Youtube and type in "iPod DFU" and watch one of the many videos.

    Turn off your device.
    Hold down the home and lock button for 10 seconds.
    Then let go of the lock button while still holding the home button for 15 seconds.

    Your computer will recognize the device is in DFU mode, same with iTunes and you'll be able to restore.

    since i updated to 3.0, (fyi, i have a non-mc 2g ipod touch) no dfu guide would get me into dfu. that's because somehow, my dfu times where modified. yes guys you heard that right. please dont flame me

    anyways, try this: connect your ipod to your pc, you should hear the hardware connected chime. now: hold the power+home buttons until you hear the hardware disconnected chime (on your pc), immediately when you hear it, let go of the power button while still holding the home button, until you hear the hardware connected chime again. this works for me everytime, more often than dfu guides

    Don't worry, I fixed it, but I have another problem now, check my thread in the iPod touch forum.
