Learn about Issues installing iTunes or QuickTime for Windows

HT1926 I have an ipod touch and recently updated my itunes and now my ipod keeps saying it is in recovery and needs to be restored.  I keep attempting to do it (as it takes about 45 min.) and afterwards I get the same message.  The screen tells me to plug in.

I have an ipod touch and recently performed the latest updates of itunes.  It said there were problems with my ipod and it need to be restored.  I did that and now it says it's in recovery mode and that I need to restore it.  It takes 45 minutes and I've tried it several times and keep getting same message.  My ipod is now unusable and it has a photo of a plug with an itunes icon telling me to plug it in.  It is plugged in???  I restarted the computer, tried another computer, reset my ipod and nothing.  Help!
