    Heya, got an iPod touch today and the picture of the lead towards the itunes logo is on my iPod touch whenever I turn it on, so I connect it via USB and boot up itunes though itunes says "iPhone cannot be connected because of an unknown error" WTF?!?!? It isn't even an iPhone!

    The latest.............when I try to restore the iPod, it detects it as an iPod, though when I finish downloading the software it says "the iPod could not be restored" :C

    Call AppleCare first. They'll have to run you through some hoops first, and it may turn out to be a simple problem to fix, but if it isn't they can make an appointment for you with a Mac Genius at your nearest Apple Store to get your unit replaced.

    I would try to restore it and reinstall iTunes before trying to return it. If you can't restore through iTunes normally, force it into restore mode.
