    . I've updated my iPod like 6 times (3 failed 2.0, 3 restore to 1.1.4) and it always shows up. Am I doing something wrong?

    update your itunes to 7.7 and restart your computer, redo it again and it should work.

    The same thing happened to me. All you have to do is update your itunes.
    It worked for me after that.
    Good luck
