I really need help guys. I've searched and searched. Here and Google. For the past 18 hours. I was listening to my iPod today and it just died. Completely unresponsive, Until I connected to my computer. It began an endless cycle of restore mode. I got it in DFU mode and it stopped restarting... If i take it out of DFU it continues the endless cycle. Also, if I disconnect it from the computer, It becomes once again, COMPLETELY NON-RESPONSIVE. My iPod just wont restore in iTunes. It gets to "Prepareing iPod for restore" and the instant after it shows the spinning wheel on the boot screen, it restarts in recovery mode. Then I get the "1611" Error. I've tried 35 times from DFU mode. And 20 times from restore mode. I've tried restarting the computer, changing the USB port (to every other USB port on my computer) uninstalling and re-installing iTunes twice COMPLETELY (and restarting the computer in between each) and uninstalling and re-installing Quicktime. I've deleted the firmware that was in my "Apple Computer" folder, and I downloaded through iTunes again. I just cant get it to restore. Can anyone please help me with a solution? I can't get a new iPod right now.
