Everytime i plug my ipod in, itunes always says that my ipod is in recovery mode. So it says i need to restore it, so everytime it click restore...it does it...and when the process is nearly finished (the part where it says to wait near the end) it says i have to restore it again! its a never ending stupid cycle! I only recently got this ipod and i really want to fix this. Any suggestions? (please dont direct me to the itunes page, ive already done that) My screen is white with a permenant - DO NOT DISCONNECT. When i do, its the blue apple screen. If you want any more symptoms please contact me! firstname.lastname@example.org

Put the ipod into recovery mode and connect to itunes. itunes will offer to reset the device to factory install (current iOS will be downloaded and installed). This will wipe all contents on the ipod, but you can restore all purchases from Apple store.
If you happen to have a backup you can restore from that unless that backup is too new and contains the forgotten password.
Try to reboot the iPod, just in case it has crashed
Hold the top button and the home button
for about ten seconds.
A bug can stop the screen from displaying, sometimes you can reverse
the problem by doing the reboot. If you still see nothing on the
screen, try to plug the iPhone in to the computer and try the reboot method again.

to iTunes, then continue to hold the button until iTunes recognizes
that the iPod's in recovery mode.
Recovery mode allows you to perform a restore when you're when an iPod fails to turn on or

How to Fix an iPod Touch Stuck in Recovery Mode With a Free Program An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues. Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit. The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version. Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods. In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore. When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process. You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.
