So here is the situation:

I have a 32GB iPod 2G and two days ago I tried to upgrade the software to 3.1 and because the backup was taking so long I let it run overnight. Yesterday morning I noticed an error showing (can't remember what it said exactly) saying the update failed.
Ever since my iPod is only telling me to connect it to iTunes which is telling me that I have to restore my iPod but trying so always fails and iTunes tels me that error #1604 occured (all the time!!)

I already tried every last advice I found here including using a different PC ,other cables / ports etc.

I would be grateful for any help

    I had this exact same problem. I was able to solve it by connecting to one of the USB ports on my Mac instead of using the powered USB hub that I had been using. I notice you say you've tried different ports, have you tried on of the ports directly on your Mac (or PC)?
