I recently upgraded to a 16GB refurb iPod touch 2nd generation, since it was a great deal at $200 on the Apple site! Please Register or Log in to view images Unfortunately that's where all the fun ended. When I got my iPod, hooked it up to iTunes (by the way I have version 9.0) and bought the new 3.1.1 firmware from Apple. I put the software successfully on the iPod and starting play around with 3.1.1 a little bit till...wham! It suddenly just crashed and then the "connect to itunes" logo appeared. So I connected to iTunes, attempted to restore, and got an error message saying: "an unknown error occurred (9)". I am currently running Windows Vista if you would also like to know. Please help if you can! I got really excited over this and now I'm stuck trying to figure out what's wrong....plus I don't exactly want to make a trip down to the Genius Bar, just yet.
