    I'm having this odd problem with my new Ipodtouch. I downloaded a podcast and listened to about an hour of it when it stopped on it's own. I though it was odd and pressed play again and it stopped again within seconds.

    I then tried to turn off the Ipod by using the sleep button, tbut once it shuts off, it comes back on again. Also, it won't recognize in iTunes or Windows anymore.

    I can still use the iPod on Wi-Fi, and I download a song, and that seemed to stop the whole "stop playing" thing, but iut still won't turn off unless connected to the PC, and still won't be recognized by Windows. Help!

    DFU? Sorry, I've only had this for less than a week now. What does that mean?

    For DFU, hold down Sleep & Menu (while the ipod is plugged) Hold them down for at least 10 slow second. Release the sleep button (keep the menu down) and wait fot the BIP from windows (you know when you plug in a device...) So when you ear the BIP, if the ipod screen is totally black SUCESS... If you see the itunes icon with the cable, Try again (that is the soft restore mode).

    Once in DFU (see above), in itunes you can restore... if you want to jailbreak it ... it's the right time!!!

    Hope that help

    DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) Mode is similar to Recovery Mode.

    Two alternative ways than said above to put your iPod touch into DFU Mode are:

    1. Open ZiPhone and select Prepare for Upgrade.
    2. Open iLiberty+ and under the Other Tools tab select Enter DFU Mode.

    Once your iPod touch is in DFU Mode, iTunes will recognize it and prompt you to restore.
