My Ipod Touch 4th gen froze while I was updating it with the new software. I reset it and it went into restore mode. However, after restoring in Itunes it just goes back to the Itunes Restore mode again.

I can use the Ipod but I can't sync it though Itunes, and so all my music and apps have gone - I can restore my apps one by one by going into the app store but that is very time consuming.

I have tried a DFU reset to no avail. In the Settings mode on the Ipod, it tells me that the iOS software is up to date.

Can anyone advise what I can do next? Thanks!
