So in my earlier post, i resolved my firmware issue by using my dads Laptop. I thought this was just the one thing that was causing my ipod not to connect properly, so today i plugged it back into my computer. It really doesnt work! I've tried all 9 ports in my computer (an Acer Aspire X1200),if that helps, and nothing works! It connects and disconnects, restarts, hangs and just keeps going Now, what i get when i turn it on is the screen taht shows a connector pointing to the itunes And since it keeps turning on and off, ituenes keeps giving me errors like "itunes could not connect to the iphone because an invalid response was received from the device" and "itunes could not connect to the iphone because an invalid response was received from the device (0xE8000001) or (0xE8000065). I've tried searching for things that would help, but this is really odd..
