    Tip #1: DON'T UNPLUG DURING SYNC.

    You need to put it into DFU mode and restore. Turn it off, if possible. Hold the Power and Home buttons. It should boot up. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but keep holding the home button. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it's in restore mode.

    Then restore it and don't unplug it again. Just let it sync, or hit the x up at the top.

    Huh. That's weird. You made sure it was done cancelling? Another way is to slide to cancel on your iPod. That seems to cancel it faster for me. Either way, did you try restoring it?

    Let it do a complete sync. After its done, go through the settings of the iPod on your iTunes and turn off whatever you don't want, like calendars or contacts.
