I just got a new Touch and have been in the process of trying to get it set up with iTunes.  I started out doing  a restore from back up, but now I'm stuck in a loop where I get a message that "iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode.  You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes."  When I restore, it spends an hour downloading iPod software and then I get this same message again.  (It will apparently do this ad infinitum.)  I do have the most current version of iTunes installed. I've tried turning the iPod on and off, disconnecting and reconnecting it, and resetting it.  I've tried different USB ports.  I've rebooted the computer.  Nothing changes.


Any ideas for what else to try?  Thanks!
