    I get a cartoon of steve jobs saying npebea! when i boot my ipod. It stays there. I try restoring it on itunes but after it prepares it and all it stays on the waiting for ipod screen for a long long time. It doesnt go any further. Any help. I am on a windows pc. Any help would be appreciated. I've been stuck for 4 days now. Please help....

    You started a thread on this issue in another forum on the board just a few minutes ago. That's the iPod saying it's in Recovery Mode because your 2.1 install failed. Just use iTunes and do a Restore instead - that should do the trick. If necessary, put it into DFU mode by holding down the power button while it's plugged into the computer via USB to shut down, wait 10 seconds, then hold down Home and Power for 10 seconds before letting go of Power. Then keep holding Home until the computer detecs the iPod DFU mode and installs a driver for it.

    Also, someone else had this issue yesterday. Search "NPEBEA", if that wasn't you as well. http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=99287&highlight=npebea

    thanks alot... this issue is getting me nutz...the thing is, i get to the restore, it prepares the ipod, but then it stays on the waiting for ipod phase forever...How long should that process (waiting for ipod) take? I believe I've waited there for almost 1/2 an hour... so i just dont have the patience and stop it.... the ipod shows the apple logo with the spinning wheel in the bottom... should I wait even longer than what i'm waiting or what?? thanks again...please, any help would be great!!! I'm using Windows and I have the latest itunes...I've tried with 7.7 as well....Please Help....

    Try w/ iTunes 7.5 or Restore to firmware 2.1 clean. iTunes 7.5 usually works!

    i think this could work for u the way it worked for me

    ok what i did was almost the opposite steps of the DFU Mode i held the power switch and the home button switch while the ipod was off and keep holding both buttons until ipod turns on then let go of the home button and keep holding the power button for 2 more seconds... Good luck
