EDIT: SOLVED. I FIXED ERROR (6) BY DISABLING ALL OF MY SECURITY (TEMPORARILY) UNTIL ITUNES RESTORED IT. FOR THOSE USING OPENDNS, MAKE SURE YOU DISABLE THAT TOO. EDIT 2: THE SECURITY BLOCKING ITUNES ALL OF A SUDDEN WAS MY ZONEALARM FIREWALL. yoooooooooooo iPod Touch, 8GB Second Generation (2G); NOT Jailbroken A couple of days ago, I backed up my iPod touch and noticed that all of my songs were gone. My apps will still in place though. My iPod touch syncs songs manually. So when I plugged it into iTunes, all of my songs were still there (as I have it set to manually manage music). I clicked sync, and it sync'd. But the songs were not copied. So I decided to restore my iPod. When restoring, the progress bar was stuck at a very low level. I waited 40 minutes for it to go up (no I don't have erectile dysfunction) but it wouldn't. So I took the cord out while it was "restoring." I tried restoring it again but ever since then I've been getting this error: "The iPod 'iPod' could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (6)." My iPod has been stuck in recovery mode for a long time. It has the iTunes logo with the USB thing. iTunes recognizes it every time. But I still get that error... The '(6)' has always been the error number. I've Google'd a lot today and have tried many solutions. I have tried: 1. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1275 2. Restoring manually with the 4.2.1 (shift+click restore and selecting). But when I do that, instead of giving me the (6) error, it instead tells me that the .IPSW file is corrupt I THINK I have put my iPod into DFU mode. I hold down the power and home button for 10 seconds, and after 10 seconds, let go of power while still holding on to home. I don't know how long to hold on to the home button for, so I go for 30 seconds. Rest assured, my screen goes black and iTunes says that my iPod is detected in recovery mode needs to be restored. But even in recovery mode, it will still give that message. So for some reason I think I'm doing it wrong. Whenever iTunes gives me that same error, my iPod screen will go back to the recovery one (with the iTunes logo with the USB cable pointing at it). I was hoping you guys could help me. I'm lost. I've tried restarting my computer. I've tried re-installing iTunes. No luck, no luck, no luck. And yes, I have limited warranty. Thank you to anyone who reads this whole thing. I hope this thread helps other people too.
