    I've just got a brand new iPod back from Apple and plugged it into iTunes and it needs to restore etc, but after it's restored and says it needs to restart, keep it connected...it just goes back to recovery mode again!?

    Help Please!!

    For how long though? When it says keep it connected, the touch just goes back to the ''connect to iTunes'' thing and doesn't move from there.

    Why don't you try placing the iPod touch into DFU Mode.

    I've just tried that, and then tried to recover - it's still stuck in recovery mode though!?

    Cheers for the suggestion though!

    normaly... after you restore... it loads into restore mode but shows the bar at the top and then goes to normal. Perhaps your ipod is fuxed

    Went into the local Apple 'store' and they're going to send it off again. He couldnt get it to restore either! Cheers for all the help and hopefully the next one will work!
