Who else has gotten this error message? On the Mac side it seems to appear mostly on towers with USB2 PCI cards or to people trying to connect an iPod touch to a computer using USB 1. I am trying to find a solution to it because it should not happen when the specs meet Apple's requirements for the Touch. In fact I found that its an issue with iTunes ONLY at the point where it tries to mount the iPod on the device list. On the same computer: if your iPod is in restore mode iTunes has no problems returning it to factory settings or updating it to the newest software. But once it finishes with that and tries to mount it it loses its ability to interface with the Touch giving the 0XE8000025 error.
