Guys, I'm really sorry if you've already answered this problem somewhere in your forums. I've tried searching but theres so much information here. I recently bought a second gen ipod touch, from ebay, but in good condition and not jailbroken. I hooked it up to itunes and itunes kept crashing and telling me to restore which i did no problem. However as it was updating it today itunes told me to restore, which once again i did and then, all of a sudden vista told me 'the USB device has malfunctioned and is not recognised' the screen won't come on and itunes won't register thats its attached. I'm in way over my head. Can anyone help?! ------------------double post merged------------------I've managed to get Itunes to recognise the ipod now, by going through the DFU procedure. It say i have to restore but when i click restore it says 'Software for this ipod not available.' Whats going on?!
