    Today I updated a bunch of apps on my 1st Gen iPod Touch. After I got done updating I wanted to recharge my iPod so I left it attached. While it was still attached, I got some kind of error about it not being recognized or something, not really sure what it said exactly.

    After I got that message, I got another one stating I only had 20% battery life which was odd because the meter showed between 50%-75%. I said whatever and let it go. I then notice that the meter has dropped to near zero, and that the iPod was not taking a charge. The meter on the iPod showed the plug icon as if it was fully charged, but iTunes showed no charging icon on the battery for the iPod connection.

    I thought maybe it just needed a reconnect so I did that but unfortunately I still had the same no charging issue. I then decided maybe the firmware got corrupted and decided to do a restore. I clicked the button to do a restore, and got the following message...

    "The iPod "iPod" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (2006)"

    There's a button to click for more information, and I get a log that contains...

    My iPod constantly has the picture of the use the USB cable to connect to iTunes on the display so I've been trying the sleep/power + home button to reboot so I can do a restore, but every time iTunes sees the iPod, it tells me...

    "iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes."

    I then try to reboot and restore and it just keeps going around in circles. Is there anything I can do, or does it appear that my iPod has bitten the dust with some kind of USB port failure?

    Sounds like the built in software thats on the iPod might be corrupted.

    Is it taking a charge now? You never said.

    Try DFU. If you don't know how, google "iPhone DFU." Process is same for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad.

    Well I must say that I am truly embarrassed. In my "OMFG Holy ****!!!! My iPod died!!!!" mode, I really didn't diagnose everything to the end. Apparently my USB hub decided to give me the finger, and it either died or is just throwing a tantrum atm.

    I've never had a problem with the hub before and just assumed something else was wrong. I plugged the iPod into the same port the hub was plugged into, and all is fine with the iPod. I'm so happy my iPod is alive, and I'm not too saddened about the reformat, I've been wanting to change the music I had on there anyway. :)

    Thanks for the tips and help.
