I have looked and tried the various solutions I have seen but still have the same problem. - I can easily get the ipod into DFU mode (iTunes shows restore, screen on ipod remains black. - I have libusb installed, and when I run the tester program it shows the ipod plugged in and specified as DFU mode. - I have tried all the USB ports on my laptop (vista) When in cmd trying to send the ibss2.1.1 dfu I ALWAYS get "Got USB - No Iphone/Ipod found." I'm sure it's something simple but I have seriously run out of ideas on this.
