    I bought 2.0 and it downloaded for about 5 minutes then I got an error message that said 'Ipod could not be restored" Now my screen on my ipod is black and it has the apple logo in the middle of it and there is a circle at the bottom of the screen. None of the buttons I press do anything and Itunes does not recognize that an ipod is plugged in. I really don't know what to do!:mad:

    Steps 1-3 omitted as they don't have anything to do with this.
    4. Hold the 'Home button' and 'sleep/wake' button together for atleast 5 seconds.
    5. The Apple logo will appear
    6. When this happens release the 'sleep/wake' button BUT KEEP HOLD OF 'HOME' BUTTON
    7. Your iPod will reboot (Apple logo)
    6. iTunes will recognise iPod in 'Recovery mode'
    8. You will be able to 'restore' your iPod Touch now.
