    I thought I followed the jailbreak directions exactly, I got all the way to selecting the JB.ispw file within iTunes and then itunes loaded up the firmware, restored, etc. Then it said something like "iPod will now restart" but at this point Windows popped up with the following error message. What do I do from here?

    Hm, Try putting into DFU mode and re-jailbreak... your iPod shouldn't act like that, or at least mine didn't in Windows 7... Although from the looks of that kinda error Windows can't find a driver for your iPod, a reinstall of iTunes could fix this.

    EDIT: Does iTunes react to the iPod being plugged in anyway? Like a "this iPod is in recovery mode....etc." popup?
