I have an old iPod (special edition U2) that’s been dwelling in a drawer since I got my iPhone (more or less two years). I recently changed it to disk mode because I needed to transfer a large amount of documents and latter decided to give it away (iPhone holds more songs). The problem is that now I can’t get it out of disk mode; I have tried restoring it as indicated here (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1320?viewlocale=en_US), without success. When I connect it to a MacBook iTunes won’t see it and Finder shows it as a mountable disk, a PC will show it in iTunes and even tell me to restore it but when I click “restore” I get an error message telling me that iTunes can’t connect to the update server.  Additionally, when I restore it manually I get an image of a folder and an exclamation sign.


Any ideas, other than have recycled or using it as paper weight?
