    I just bought a 4G ipod touch and adding songs, and left the room and my little sister hit the restore button in itunes and now its stuck in recovery mode and wont update. Itunes tells me: "iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes."
    I hit recovery and it gets past the recovery part to verify ipod restore. Which looked like the last step i get an error: The iPod "iPod" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred(9)

    I have tried everything..
    I am using windows 7 and i just updated itunes. Usb is updates as well.

    I have a $300 ipod and its not working.
    HELP!

    are you using a usb port on the back of your computer?
    if you have 64bit win7 do you have 64bit iTunes?
