    I downloaded the 2.0 update, and it was restoring my iPod. However, the restoration failed, and now my iPod keeps on showing the screen where the usb cable is pointed to the iTunes logo. My computer isn't recognizing my iPod either. Everytime I reset my iPod, it still shows the screen.

    Can someone help?

    I've been having that problem too. Plugging my iPod Touch into another computer with iTunes un-bricked it.

    I think it might be that I tried to install the pre-release of the iPod Touch 2.0 firmware the messed up my iPod Touch, but I'm not sure. I've been charged by iTunes for 2.0 and it's still no working. Going to try and erase all the 2.0 software on my computer and purchase it again...

    I really hope this doesn't happen to me. So far I've tried twice to backup my iPod before installing 2.0 and its failed both times. I have a crapload of album-organized music and artwork kept solely on my iPod and if I lose it its going to be a giant pain to get it again.

    Do you have any friends with a Mac? I know that some iPods are having trouble with Windows, but can be fixed on a Mac for whatever reason.

    I tried plugging it into a different computer, but that didn't work either. My brother has a Mac, but he lives in a different city.

    I'm having the exact same problem. iPod is stuck on the screen with the USB cable, arrow and iTunes symbol and I keep getting Error 6 when I try to restore.

    They better come up with a solution to this..

    (Going to try on other computer in a few minutes, but nobody I know owns a mac.)

    We own three Macs -- MacBook Pro, MacBook, and a PowerMac G5. None of them work. My iPod is seriously ****ed.

    The question now is, did you buy it from Apple or download off P2P/Bittorrent?

    Because the official one shouldn't have any issues unless you disconnected the cable or something.

    The unofficial one is just bad in many ways; apart from being illegal, it might be buggy...

    I got it from mininova (a torrent) and a friend got the same problem because he didn't had itunes 7.7.

    Good Luck :apple:
