I am trying to restore my 8 gb black iPhone 3g, but to no avail. iTunes is not recognizing it when it is in the restore mode (the one with the iTunes logo and USB cable). I attempted to put it in to DFU mode to restore it, which I beleive I did. Then, iTunes gave me the "Waiting for iPod" message, which then, afterwards gave me this message: "An iPod has been detected, but it could not be identified properly. Please disconnect and reconnect the iPod, then try again. An unknown error occured (1601)." I have tried reinstalling iTunes and uninstalling Apple Mobile Device Support. Does anyone have any other ideas, or should I try and get an exchange? I desperately need your help.
