    Hi - I hope someone can help - I cant find anything on this exact problem. My iPod touch has always been difficult on upgrading software/firmware but this time its really stuck. It upgraded quite easily to OS4 and all was well until I tried to sync new apps. All my music disappeared from the iPod and then iTunes decided that it would not recognise the iPod and told me to do a restore. This goes OK until it fails at the very last moment of verifyng and I get error 6. I have reinstalled iTunes and the device driver to no avail. I'm now at my wit's end. Help please!

    if its jailbroken
    launch ifile and delete /var/mobile/media/itunes_control and connect to itunes then resync.set up a new ipod or use backups.it would help.

    if its not
    download the firmware yourself (u can find download links in this forum)
    and try to shift + restore it
