That is correct.
I was unable to get past that step with a brand-new iPod classic. I restored it and return it to Best Buy.

The iPod will show an apple logo after about 5 seconds, keep holding the buttons until it seems to turn off completely The display of your iPod should now stay black, and a new USB device called "Apple Recovery (DFU) USB Driver" should connect to your PC That's what you had issues with right? I did it all perfectly the first time, but now I can't get beyond that. So silly

I have followed the instructions on this page http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/IpodFAQ#How_do_I_find_out_what_iPod_I_own_63 but it never works. I would like to know if there is another method to try and also I would like to know how to get my iPod completely back to out of the box settings. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
