    I have an ipod touch given to me from my cousin because he swears it cant be fixed. when you press any button(unplugged that is) absolutely nothing comes on the screen. if you plug it to the computer without any restore modes an apple logo appears on the ipod and then proceeds to say connect to itunes... itunes recognizes it in recovery mode and says to restore.

    when i restore it extracts software, but as soon as it prepares to restore it disconnects from the computer about 3 times in a row, but still continues to restore( although the ipod screen is black) after it doesnt restore i get the 1603 error... with a plugged up ipod and the computer not recognizing it

    i tried diff usb ports
    i tried several computers

    PLEASE any help will do
    ill paypal someone $10 if i get it to work

    first off, are you on itunes 7.7? if not, uninstall all itunes folders and crap on your computer and download the new itunes. then try dfu mode on your ipod. just in case:
    1. Hold Power Button and turn off device
    2. Wait 5 seconds
    3. Hold Power + Home Button For 10 seconds
    4. Let go of power button but keep pressing the home button for 10 seconds
    5. itunes will open and say "your ipod is in recovery mode and you need to restore"
    if that doesnt work, you could take it to apple and see if they can fix it.

    Try different computer, usb ports, and even usb cable if you have it...

    did you try what i said? completely remove all itunes related material from your computer. re-install a brand new itunes and try it again. also, im not talking about restore mode. im talking about device firmware upgrade. it will put 1.1.5 on your ipod or 2.0 if you want to pay.

    yeah. im guessing your on a pc? i think everything is in the itunes folder but you have to show hidden files. then delete everything, restart your computer, and install itunes. should work.

    Yeah, it's as simple as placing your iPod touch into DFU Mode (a similar mode to Recovery Mode).

    The version of iTunes you're running doesn't affect you whatsoever, unless dealing with Firmware 2.0.

    uninstall itunes 7.5 restart your pc then install 7.7 then restart your pc then try and restore in dfu mode.

    hold the home and power button until its off, after 2 seconds of it being off let go of the power button and itunes will recognize it and you will be able to restore
