This error is often related to USB timing. Try changing USB ports, using a different dock connector to USB cable, and other available USB troubleshooting steps (troubleshooting USB connections. If you are using a dock, bypass it and connect directly to the white Apple USB dock connector cable. If the issue persists on a known-good computer, the device may need service.
If the issue is not resolved by USB isolation troubleshooting, and another computer is not available, try these steps to resolve the issue:
- Connect the device to iTunes, confirm that the device is in Recovery Mode. If it's not in Recovery Mode,put it into Recovery Mode.
- Restore and wait for the error.
- When prompted, click OK.
- Close and reopen iTunes while the device remains connected.
- The device should now be recognized in Recovery Mode again.
- Try to restore again.
If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try restoring using a known-good USB cable, computer, and network connection.

If you download the firmware from another source (just google ipod 4th generation firmware), then from that you hold shift as you click on the restore and from there a window will pop up and you then select the file you downloaded and restore it with that, should work did with me.

I restored it on another computer and that worked, but now when I plug my iPod into my computer it doesn't register that it is plugged in. Even on my iPod it doesn't say that it's plugged in. I thought it was something to do with iTunes so I uninstalled it and downloaded it again, but it still doesn't register. So now I have my iPod but I cannot sync any music to it! Any ideas?
