    Restart the computer, variable reset the iPod, try a different computer, try a different USB port.

    You can variable reset by holding power for 2 seconds and both home and power for 15 seconds.

    Purple is for 3.0 betas. It'll be gone on final release. I think that 2.0 betas had a different color? Unsure of what it was.

    You have to put it into DFU mode to downgrade.
