Why can't I restore my ipod touch version 2?  Error 1604?

How can I restore my Ipod Touch, version 2, ios 4.2.1?  I tried to do an original restore from ITunes.  It erased all of my files.  The Ipod now sits there with a screen suggesting to plug it into ITunes.  It is plugged in!  Itunes doesn't even recognize it as a "device".
I was able to repeat the process several times, by unplugging it, re-starting ITunes, and re-running the original restore.
I got the following message, "The Ipod could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1604)."  I went to the "More Information" section, but none of the suggestions applied to me.
In this condition it is totally unusable!

Error 1604
This error is often related to USB timing. Try changing USB ports, using a different dock connector to USB cable, and other available USB troubleshooting steps (troubleshooting USB connections. If you are using a dock, bypass it and connect directly to the white Apple USB dock connector cable. If the issue persists on a known-good computer, the device may need service.
If the issue is not resolved by USB isolation troubleshooting, and another computer is not available, try these steps to resolve the issue:
Connect the device to iTunes, confirm that the device is in Recovery Mode. If it's not in Recovery Mode, put it into Recovery Mode.
Restore and wait for the error.
When prompted, click OK.
Close and reopen iTunes while the device remains connected.
The device should now be recognized in Recovery Mode again.
Try to restore again.
If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try restoring using a known-good USB cable, computer, and network connection.
