    I tried the reset buttons, didn't work.

    When I go to iTunes, it says my iPod is in recovery mode. When I try to restore in iTunes, i get an error code (6).

    So what do I do now?

    additional info: I tried to copy songs from iTunes to my iPod, but it failed. So I thought updating to 4.0.2, would fix the problem, which is what got it stuck into recovery mode.

    Will this void my warranty though?

    I'm still within 14 days of purchase and don't want to screw that up :)

    I don't think it will .(maybe read the readme) Or if you think the ipod is messed up just get it replaced.

    A couple of songs copied, however alot of songs failed to being copied.

    My old iPod doesn't have this problem however.

    Do you think that it indicates a hardware error? ( which is why I tried to update to 4.0.2 which got it stuck in recovery mode )

    It's an iPod classic and the problem occured with 3.1.3 on this iPod touch that is brand new.

    Thought that maybe 3.1.3 was very buggy, but now I think it could have been a hardware defect that caused both errors.
