    Here one for you...my i-pod 1st generation 8gb froze up completely last night...tried everything, nothing worked. Went to Apple store today and had them restore (took 4 tries to do it-even they were scratching their heads) Needless to say..it was restored and told to plug back into my computer and re-sync everything tonight. Problem is...now i-tunes doesnt recognize the ipod when it's plugged in BUT...tried my 2 daughter i-pods tonight @ theirs works fine with i-tunes when plugged in??? what's wrong with mine? Still works ok with wi-fi for internet access ect but can sync any songs and nothings on it.
    HELP!!!

    do this-
    turn power off
    hold down home+power for ten seconds
    release power AFTER TEN SECONDS but keep on holding home for another ten seconds.
    you know your done when the screen is lit, but is showing black.
    plug your ipod in and it should say "ipod touch foud in recovery mode. your must restore this ipod to use with itunes"
    restore


    hope this helps!
