Restoring iPod - tricky case
It seems I have really messed up my iPod! Apple's support pages don't have any solution to my problem so I've come here.
When I connect my iPod to the Mac, there is absolutely no detection - neither iTunes, nor Finder can detect it. The disk of the iPod is however detected in Disk Utility. I think I may have messed up the permissions of the disk, so it isn't "viewable". But, clearly there is an amount of "invisible detection", i.e when I disconnect it the Mac will display warning.
I believe the solution to this is restoring the iPod to factory settings. But, this isn't possible, as it can only be recognised in Disk Utility. Should I erase it at Disk Utility, and load the iPod software afterwards? Please advise.

Restart your iPod by pressing the center + Menu keys... imediately after you do this, hold down the center + play key.. this will get it into disk mode... it should be detected by the Mac, open iTunes, then restore it.
