    I've been trying this forever and I still can't figure out why my ipod touch 2g isn't recognized in dfu mode in windows vista. It says "Unknown Device" instead of "Apple Recovery (DFU)." Are there some drivers that I can install? Maybe I have to install an update or something? I already have LibUSB and it doesn't detect my ipod either. Also, I know how to put my device in DFU mode. I jailbroke in OS X and booted in to dfu mode many times. I normally use Vista though because all of my music and stuff is there. Maybe it's my computer's hardware? (it's not 64-bit, it's 32)

    Uninstall libusb then reInstall it again with windows xp sp2 compatibility rights and restart. Then try again.

    I've done that a few dozen times and it still didn't work, but I guess I'll try again.

    No, it didn't. I think it might be because I have a previous lib-usb for the psp remotejoy thing. (psp type b driver) Idk how to make it work on my vista yet.

    I have, just not in vista.

    It should work, I got my ipod in dfu mode on Vista. You are probably not doing it right. Hold the home button until itunes pop up.

    I have a big problem. I have jailbreak my ipod 2g before in a laptop with Windows XP, no I have changed my laptop to another one with Vista.
    When my iPOD run out of battery I always put it in DFU mode with no problems to turn it on, in XP. Now I have tried several times to put it in DFU mode to turn it on, in Vista an I have had no luck.
    Can someone help me?
