    I bought the Ipod touch jan software update today. It downloaded and everything. but it made me restore my ipod. My ipod is now stuck in restore. It says when i plug my ipod in: The iPod can't be retore. Unknown error occured (6).
    I've tried everything. I restarted the computer like 5 times. I've plugged the ipod into a different USB port including one on the back of the computer. I've uninstalled and reinstalled itunes. I've unplugged and replugged my ipod like 5 times.
    HELP? i'd perfer not to waste my $10.

    Step 1. Turn off your iPhone.

    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.

    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.

    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode.

    Alternative Method:


    Step 1. Connect iphone to USB then listen to the sound when it connect and disconnect.

    Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.

    Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.

    also, make sure the FW you are trying to restore with is not corrupted.

    also if you can't restore your ipod, try using a different version of itunes.
