Try what Apple suggest:

"Resolution

If this happens, the iPod software may have been damaged. Put iPod into Disk Mode, then restore or update iPod's software.

Put iPod into Disk Mode.

iPod should appear in the iTunes Source pane and on the desktop or in a Finder window, or in the My Computer window.

If a message appears that says the volume could not be mounted and asks if you want to initialize the disk, choose to initialize iPod's disk. Use Mac OS Extended format (HFS Plus) if you have a Mac, or FAT32 if you have a Windows PC.

''' Warning: This process cannot be undone. All of your songs, videos, and other files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.

'''

Follow the steps to update or restore iPod. If you manually put iPod into Disk Mode it may need to be reset before you can use it.

Adam Clare, try this instead"Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes.

2. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch.

3. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears,

then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.

4. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting USB cable. When you reconnect USB, the device should

then power on.

Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" or you see the screen pictured below, let the device

charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again.

5. Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.

6. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message" and see if it works for you. If not you can try this as well 1: PLUG YOUR IPOD INTO YOUR COMPUTER!!!

2: HOLD THE "HOLD" AND THE "MENU" BUTTON UNTIL THE TOUCH'S SCREEN GOES BLACK AND SHOWS THE APPLE LOGO AGAIN THEN RELEASE THE BUTTONS!!!

3: WAIT ABOUT 5-15 MINUTES!!!

4: YOUR COMPUTER WILL MAKE A "CHIME" SOUND AND THEN THE IPOD WILL SHOW THE LOCKED SCREEN WITH THE BATTERY LOGO...
