got the new ipod. synced it to itunes. I then went to update so i could update my ipod to ios 6.1. For some reason my ipod went into recovery mode. as a result, it says I have to restore the ipod to continue. However, since there is an update available, it automatically tries to update it. However, it cant, since it is in recovery mode. I can't get it out of recovery mode, because it has to be restored, and I cant restore it because it has to update, and I cant update because it is recovery mode.
