    I have this same exact problem. I've tried EVERYTHING! DFU mode then restore, regular restoring and updating. The only thing I can restore to is 2.2.1 (fresh unjailbroken file) then when I try to update or restore. The same process happens again. Maybe its just not meant for me to have 3.0

    Edit: (found out I've been restoring to a 1st gen 2.2.1...damn apple)

    I have some ideas. I just need a fresh 2ND GEN 2.xx update. Right now I have a 2g with 1g FW on it.

    Edit: now it won't even restore to 2.2.1

    Hi guys,

    I have the same problem as kev50088, i tried to restore my ipod to the 3.0 firmware and I always get an 1601 or 1602 error. I even tried the 3.0gm wich also didn't work, I am sure my iPod was in DFU-mode...

    Please help me?
