    Have you had a custom firmware by any chance?

    I heard something wrong with the verification from Apple. Maybe you should wait for few days.

    iPod Touch Will Not Restore

    iPod 4thGen worked great until software update 5.1, then sync issue began. Thought 5.1.1 would fix it, but I've gotten this error ever since. 4 hours of wait time while it attempts to restore - then same error. Deleted all Apple files from PC, tried again. After 4 hours, same error. Downloaded/installed iTunes on a different PC that never had it before, iPod need to be restored. 4 hours later, same error. When I posted my concern on Apple's Community - they deleted it because it was a 'rant'. What do they expect? Why don't they fix the problem rather than hide it by deleting posts. My $300 iPod is useless, and Apple is the cause. Sure, I'll wait for a fix, but I won't hold my breath.

    IF there were thousands of other people with this problem, I could see it; there clearly aren't. So, yours is a one-off case, but 'Apple is the cause'.

    It's ridiculous. Rather than 'ranting', you could have spent that time/energy trying to find a solution.

    Obviously you've either done something, or something has caused a problem. Surely there's a fix. Calm down, and take a deep breath.

    I have seen so many threads about this problem, you just need to hold on shift and then press update, then find the firmware in your computer to update your iPod Touch.
