    Let's take a walk down memory lane.

    So we hold Sleep+Home, right?

    We chill, and wait for it to turn off, and in windows, we hear two beeps.
    Those two beeps signify it losing the connection to the computer.

    Loss of hardware.
    We let go of Sleep, and keep holding the Home button.
    Ten seconds later, boom! DFU Mode, right?

    WRONG.
    'Add New Hardware Wizard' for my new USB DFU Device.

    WOWW. Windows needs a driver?
    Where shall we look? The internet? The HDD?

    Hell, we'll look everywhere for a USB DFU Device Driver.
    NONE.

    Let's go into our device manager, do we find anything?
    Yes, we do. A nice little yellow caution sign, next to our 'USB DFU Device'
    Shall we try to update the driver? Sure. Let's give it a go.

    And, of course, we can't find a driver.
    iTunes isn't recognizing it. Why would it?
    According to my computer, it's not an iPod Touch, it's a USB DFU Device. DUH.

    ?
    Anybody want to help?
  2. is it in recovery mode or what? can you put it back into recovery mode? try another computer. thats what i had to do when i first bought my ipod and it wouldnt connect to my computer.

    Then go smoke marijuana.
    And spell it right next time.

    Windows XP, Service Pack 2.

    Recovery mode.
    Another computer?

    I can't.

    install and start intunes,
    Then restall the "driver". Windows should be able to find the drivers automatically then.

    lol i am having the same problem, my ipod was stuck in dfu, i then deleted the drivers, my computer right click, manage, usb, so it could hopefully install again and maybe turn on but now it just says for u to locate the driver or insert a disk or search online and it never finds it.
