I keep seeing topics about how someone's Ipod isn't recognized, and how they cant put it in DFU mode. So here is how to do it, and it will ALWAYS work if done right. Use the windows clock to get exact times. 1) Open itunes, and plug in the ipod. 2) Hold home and power for 10 seconds, then release power but keep holding home 3) Keep holding home for about 8 seconds. 4) Ipod will appear in itunes Note: This is just to hopefully end some of the topics saying they bricked their ipod.
