Hi. Last week I turned my Ipod off, and when I tried to turn it on I had this recovery screen (USB cable pointing an ITunes logo). I tried everything the net had to offer - from cold resets, and connecting the Ipod while pressing the Home button, to DFU mode, but it keeps showing this scren. The Itunes, however doesn't seem to identify my Ipod, and even when the Ipod is connected to the PC, the Itunes doesn't see it.
I have never jailbroke my Ipod, or tried anything like that. I liked my Ipod the original way it was.
It takes a while but you need to try the same restore process on every port until you find one that runs fast enough. I had the same issue up until about 2pm today and that worked. I'm up and running now.
