It's happened for the first time for me.. Just updating my iPod 5.5g Video to the newest firmware the other day.. and BOOM i get the 1418 (Could not restore) error! I've tried everything! The format on my windows won't work.. HP Disk utility says that it is write protected i've tried all the little things about taking out the cable when restoring and that.. I really don't know what to do now!! Can anybody enlighten me?
