    :mad:My Ipod touch just shut off while backing up to itunes and never turned back on. When I try to turn it on it goes only as far as the apple logo and stays there for ever. By the way I am using 2.0.

    Can anyone help me?

    This happened to me as well. When it's off, hold down the home button and plug it into your computer. When you see the "Connect to iTunes" logo appear, let go, and restore your iPod.

    Let me clarify.

    Plug your iPod into iTunes. Hold down both the sleep/wake button and the home button. The screen will go black and then the Apple logo will appear. When it appears, release the sleep/wake button, while still holding the home button. You should get a "Device found in recovery mode, do you want to restore?" message on iTunes. Restore. In about 90 minutes, you should have a functioning iPod Touch. :D

    Ok I did all that but now I can't download any of the apps I have previously downloaded. Well I can't download them from my ipod directly, also I don't know how to download them from my computer then put them on my ipod.
