How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an Ipod 3g with 4.2.1 that I got for Christmas. It was a refurbished one from Apple. When I got it, it didnt have an OS on it so I went to Itunes and installed 4.2.1. I have been trying to jail break it since with no luck. I d/led the newest greenpoison zip (rc6.1) went thru the steps. but it always comes up "Try Again. I cant get it to dfu mode. I have also tried manually putting in dfu and have watched several youtube's and did everything exactly. So... What am I doing wrong? ..Thanks...

If it's really giving you trouble and you don't mind restoring, albeit to custom firmware, then you can always use either Pwnage (Mac) or Sn0wbreeze (Win), you may find getting into DFU a bit easier with those tools.
