    How long does an iPod take to be restored?

    I had to restore my iPod to factory settings today because my mom disconnected it from the computer without ejecting. I had iTunes restore it to factory settings and was told the iPod would now restart itself and I shouldn't disconnect it. It's been over an hour now perhaps an hour and a half and it is still in what my computer calls "recovery mode". Is this a normal time length or is my iPod broken?

    It broke. LOL sorry, it should restart in some minutes. Try to disconnect and connect again to iTunes. Or try to put it in recovery mode again (you know what buttons to press don't you?) and re-do the process. It happened to me exactly the same, but I managed to make it work again.

    your ipod wont restore if its been there for 1 1/2, it happened to mine, it was stuck on recovery mode, and i tried uninstalling itunes and all its features ex. bonjour, updates, etc, then restarted my computer, and then i installed itunes and restarted my computer again, and that worked for me, and if that doesnt work, try doing it with recboot or iReb or blackrain, see tutorials on youtube.
