    i bought an 8 gb ipod touch yesterday and i think there is something wrong with it. itunes doesn't detect it no matter HOW MANY times i try to restore it. i think its stuck in recovery mode. i know nothing about apple devices btw. i tried everything other people suggested. its still the same. there is a usb port towards itunes icon on the screen. i have been trying to restore it for like 18 hours and i am at my wits end. :[ please help me!

    You have a restore screen. If iTunes up to date? DFU mode restore?

    Brand new? When you take it out of the case, you'll see a restore screen. Then you connect it to iTunes, and then your iPod should work once you Synced it.

    Are you on Win7?

    Hhmm, this happened to my girlfriend back when she first got her 1st generation touch...we ended up having to take it back to the apple store, they replaced it straight away.
