I was in the process of updating the ipod fw to 2.0. I got the apple logo with the little time circle in the bottom. It went for over an hour so i took it off the cradle and reset it (home/sleep). It then gives me the connect usb cable symbol. I connected and it gave me "Itunes has detected an ipod in recovery mode. You must restore this ipod before it can be used with itunes". I click restore and it proceeds to restore and then it gives me "The ipod could not be restored. An unknown error occurred." it has a (1611) and sometimes (-1) right after that. It then goes into the apple logo and little time circle in the bottom. I've searched multiple forums on this issue and everyone seems to be ok after they get to the restore screen but what if you can't eve get it to restore?
