My grandma found a used IPod Touch at a yard sale around 2-3 weeks ago and bought it and gave it to me, I finally got some time to check it out and found it in perfect working condition, the screen was pristine, full functionality, but I despised the songs that were on it(jazz remixes/rap/country/gospel songs... ew) ...

well I hit the Reset All Settings & Data, or something like that, and after a while it finished and apparently it ran out of charge even though im sure it didnt, but never the less it is now in recovery mode(usb cable -->> itunes logo) .... I've watched ~20 youtube vids how to fix this all basically saying to plug it into a comp with itunes and hit "Recovery" or something to that effect.........

So I borrow a friend's usb data cable and plug it in and i get the "USB device not recognized" i go through the whole speal about enabling and reinstalling the driver, doesnt work, borrow my girlfriend's usb data cable, repeat driver thing, nothing... another cable, nothing... and this is where i stand, 20 feet from the kitchen with an agitated state of being and a perfectly good blender about to put said blender to good use........ it doesnt charge with any of the cables either btw..

+ a bit of into on the ipod: it has external speaker, ability to accept voice commands, other than that.. im not sure what generation it is, 8gb...

    what you do is open itunes and plug it into the computer next hold down the top key and the home key on the ipod. Hold both keys until the apple logo shows on the screen then let go of the top button but keep holding the home button. Then a message on itunes will pop up that will say ipod in recovery mode will need to reset. you press yes
