    Have you tried putting your iPod into DFU mode? If you don't know how, google "iPhone DFU" -- it's the same for both iPhone and iPod, and you're likely to get more hits if you search for iPhone.

    If its the latest generation, it should still be under warrenty. I would take it to an apple store or call them.

    Just bring it to an apple store and let them take a look if it wont even go into DFU mode.

    Ha ha.

    To the OP; try it on a different computer. Just download iTunes on another computer and see if it works.
