I have been searching the net for hours, trying various combinations of things. Different firmware etc but I still have the same problem I've had since I started. An iPod Touch 2G 16GB someone gave me wont restore no matter what I do. When I turn it on it gives me the plug into iTunes image, so I plug it in and iTunes says it's in recovery mode. If I tell it to restore, it extracts the firmware and then prepares the iPod for restore. During this it fails and says it can't be restored, Unknown error (1603) I've tried on different computers (PCs not MACs) different USB ports. I have the latest iTunes and I'm (apparently) trying to restore to 3.1.1 The only thing I can think is that this iPod clearly hasn't been attached to a computer for a long time so the firmware on it is probably quite old. Could this be causing it to fail the restore? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
