hi i have a 8gb 1st gen itouch that i bought from a friend. It is stuck on recovery mode (picture of usb cable and itunes logo). I cant seem to get itunes or even my laptop(vista) to recognize it. My laptop says USB not recognized and itunes doesnt say anything. my laptop recognizes it as a unknown device. i have tried the following.... Trying to boot it in DFU mode... <prior experience on own itouch> Held down both power and home button to reboot.<30 sec> it is still stuck on recovery mode screen. i have also tried it on my desktop(thanks) and the same error and message appears. Reinstalled itunes and all components USED irecovery and it says got usb but no iphone/ipod found. any help would be appreciated.
