Error 1604 during jailbreak?

My cousin gave me a 16 gb iPod touch 1st gen and I decided to jailbreak it (before I fixed the screen) and I used whited00r 6. Everything was working until the end of the installation where itunes opened a window that said: error 1604. I tried again in a different port because that's what it told me to do. same thing happened again and I ended up having to wipe it (nothing of value was on it anymore).

Should I use another system to jailbreak it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Ted Mayer, go through the steps systematically:"Method 1:

Try changing USB ports.

Try using a different dock connector to USB cable.

Make sure that you are using the actual USB or the original.te

Try connect directly to the white Apple USB dock connector cable.

Try update your iTunes to the latest one.

If the issue still appears try method 2

Method 2 :

Turn your iPhone off by holding the power button down until you see “slide to power off”.

Now hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to your iPhone. After iPhone is connected it should power on the device.

Continue holding the Home button, you will see the Apple logo appear and then finally a “Connect to iTunes” will be displayed, now is the time to release the Home button.

Method 3 :

For iPhone 3G, 2G and iPod Touch 1G, iPod Touch 2G users running OS 3.1.2 can use iREB to fix error 16xx or 29:

I'm not using the original connector, I'm using one I got at Walgreens because my cousin kept the connector for his iPhone 4s.
