Ok so heres the situation, i have a 30gig ipod video and it continuously gives me the message that i need to plug it into my computer and restore it using itunes, ive done this many times to no prevail,and im starting to give up hope. Ive also tried some ipod updater that was recommended but it was of no assistance, I tried emailing apple but they didnt do anything at all and niether did their forums, if anyone could help me out I would truely appreciate it, i dont want to go out and buy a new ipod if i dont have to. please reply to this or email me back at *removed*. If anyone could give me a hand i would truely appreciate it. thank you so much. Korey.
