    Exactly what Munksyman325 said.

    10 seconds holding both power and home down, then release power and hold home down for 8 seconds (Or until it appears in itunes). Use the windows clock for help

    Or listen for the connect/disconnect sounds from windows. Hold power/home until you hear the first beep, the let go of power, then the next beep let go of home & voila, you're in DFU

    Make sure you've connected it to a USB 2.0 port. I had this problem when I had connected it to my USB Hub 1.1.

    I don't have a USB 2 port. Only 1.1, and it mostly worked the first time I tried, full manual.
