I've tryed over and over and over and over again to put it into DFU mode but it just wont do it. I followed the instructions exactly as it told me to do them and still nothing. All it does is turn on like normal. Help?

On older devices everything takes longer. Try to watch a YouTube video for exactly your device.

I found JUST what i needed!!! Lock your ipod like normal, then hold the power and home button for ten seconds, then let go of the power button and hold the home button for ten more seconds and let go. It should stay in a black screen. :D
