    Hi everyone!

    I have a little problem with my iPod. (Excuse me if I misplaces my topic.) It's turned off at the moment, obviously because it won't start. A few minutes ago, I still had a white screen (guess it's a bsod, iPod Style

    ), but when I tried to restore it, iTunes said an unknown error occured. And now, it doesn't start at all.

    My iPod worked fine before, but as soon as the battery went empty, it got that loading-animation on the screen, before shutting down. While that animation was still on the screen, I plugged in my USB-cable, to charge it. That's how this all started.

    Does anyone know what to do now?

    Put it in DFU mode:
    Switch off,
    Hold Power+Home for 10 seconds,
    Release Power, keep holding Home for 30 seconds,

    (If your screen is completely black, and iTunes come up with a dialog "iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before you can use it with iTunes" you're in DFU mode. If not, try again.)

    Then click "Restore" under 'Devices > [iPod Name].

    For some magical reason, it just started like nothing happened... I was just sitting back, and suddenly my iPod made the "Connected to a computer"-sound. This is what I was like:
