    I get the pineapple logo, then a cartoon of steve jobs pops up (npebea!). My ipod touch doesnt do anything from there. itunes recognizes it and says it needs to be restored. I click restore, it prepares it, but then it just stays saying "Waiting for Ipod". It doesnt go any further than that. I have Windows. Please Help...I've been trying everything for 4 days now...Please help......

    Try rebooting the ipod when it says waiting for ipod, just hold down home and sleep till it shuts off.

    You really have to make sure your timing is perfect. You will need a stopwatch/system clock, counting in your head will not work.
    Plug in iPod
    Turn off ipod
    Hold Power+Home for 10 seconds
    Let go of Power and keep Home pressed in for 10 seconds
    Let go of Home
    Your computer should detect your ipod in DFU recovery mode
