I have a iPod Touch 4th Generation 64gb.  One day, it restarted itself without input on my part.  Now, it's showing the "Connect to iTunes" screen.  When I connect it, iTunes says its found an iPod in Recovery Mode.  When I click Restore, it downloads the latest update and goes through the process of restoring my iPod.  However, when the iPod screen shows the loading bar under the Apple logo, the screen flashes white and restarts.  Obviously, iTunes spits out Error 9 because of the loss of connection.


I've done everything from hard resets to entering DFU mode.  NOTHING WORKS!


To include some extra info:


- It's out of warranty


- It's Black


- I've tried this on three ( 3 ) different PCs


Any help would be appreciated.  And also, spitting back Apple support pages is NOT helping.

iPod touch, Windows 8
