HELP - PC or MAC does not recognize my aTV 2 anymore.

I've hit a couple of roadbumps with the installation and after a couple of tries, my aTV2 won't flash anymore when plugged in a usb port of my computers (either MAC of PC) so it ain't visible in iTunes either. I really want to go through this process and try your product, but this keeps me from doing so.

Has this happened to anyone and if so, how did you fix it.

The aTV2 still works normally when hooked to the TV and power. It's only when plugged to a computer that it doesn't work.

I tried restoring it on the TV but it doen't help, still not seen by the computers afterward...

 

Please help!!!! ;)

You might try connecting both the USB and power cables, as this can sometimes help kick the Apple TV into DFU mode.

A few more tips can be found here.

I tried with the power cable also. Didn't change the results... 

Don't give up so easy, it may take a couple of times wink
