    Hello macrumors,

    I have a 20GB iPod 3rd Generation back from 2003. I changed computers a while back and was going to restore it. However, I am blocked by this message:


    I've tried unplugging the FireWire cable, restarting my computer several times, and upgrading to iTunes 8.0.1.

    Any ideas?

    hold the menu and center button at the same time, then retry

    Oh yeah... totally forgot to reset the iPod.:eek:

    Hopefully it'll work like it always does for simple problems. Thanks!
