Windows XP Pro + SP3
iPod Nano 1st generation, firmware version 1.3.1
When I connect the iPod to the PC iTunes says
iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore
this iPod before it can be used with iTunes
OK, that's what I do. I get a message that
Your iPod has been restored to factory setting, and is
restarting. Please leave your iPod connected. It will
appear in the iTunes window after it restarts.
Then on the iPod the Apple logo appears for a few minutes, which then switches to a "Do not disconnect" message. Again after some time the recovery mode reappears in iTunes. I've cycled through this a few times, even on a different USB port, but no avail. If I disconnect the iPod I can walk through the menus, and reset it. The music of course has gone.
Is there a way to get the iPod out of recovery mode, other than with the iTunes function?
