When I went to bed last night, my iTunes was still restoring my iPod and it appeared to be working. I got up a few hours later to check on it and iTunes was showing an alert saying that the iPod was in restore mode and I needed to restore before I can proceed. When I attempted to restore, iTunes crashed. Since I have a 5G iPod, there’s no stand-alone iPod updater. I’ll try on another Mac or PC at the office today.
