    that means that it is broken and you cannot do a single thing to fix it aka ur screwed.

    no im kidding! wow a week?? did you put it in DFU not restore mode??
    if you put it in DFU correctly then switch usb ports?
    switch computer? try all those, most of the time, its cuz you didnt DFU right.

    if u dunno how, just ask.

    yes common symptoms of you not putting into DFU.

    to put DFU, turn it on, now it says plug in to itunes.
    then hold down the power and home button together for a while...
    then release the power button, and keep holding the home button until ur comp says its there.

    when i say a while, i mean until something happens, ull know young grasshopper.

    if that doesnt work, try when its turned off, but im pre sure its when its turned on.

    ok well if your sure that you've put it into DFU correctly!
    then...

    switch USB ports. try again... if fail then...
    reinstall iTunes. then... try again... if fail...
    switch USB ports again.

    this is DFU mode...

    DFU Instructions

    DFU Step 1) First Turn off your iPod and (unplug it from your computer)

    DFU Step 2) Now Connect your ipod to your computer and hold the POWER + HOME button at the same time. Now wait 10 seconds.

    DFU Step 3) Now let go of the power button, but keep holding home for another 10 seconds.

    DFU Step 4) Release home and now your iPod will be in DFU mode.

    WHILE IN DFU MODE YOUR IPOD WILL REMAIN BLACK THE ENTIRE TIME!



    Tips:

    Listen to your computer for the USB connections while you are placing your iPod into DFU mode. During DFU Step 1 you will hear a tone on connection. As soon as you hear a tone on disconnection release the power button and continue to DFU step 2. Hold home until you hear another usb connection confirmation and you will be in DFU mode.
    Timing is everything, if you hold down power and home too long, your ipod may not enter DFU mode.




    these are the instructions that i got when i was jailbreaking my ipod touch,, hope this help,,, and if that doesn't work, try to start over all the steps but this time in a different usb port,,, good luck with ur ipod...
