    I got my ipod about 3 wweks ago and dont really know what im doing, but ive encountered a problem. Two days ago i tried to reset my ipod completely bakc to normal by going to setting/general/reset, and waited until it was completely done. It finished loading and now is stuck in the pinapple screen. I can turn it off by holding the home and power buttons, but itunes cannot regonize it. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!
    thanks

    try to DFU it:
    connect ipod with computer, then
    boot up ipod, then press homebutton, hold it and press power button. hold both until ipod turns off then stay 1second on both buttons then release powerbutton BUT still hold homebutton! after a short time iTunes should popup and tell you to restore.

    if you fail and the screen of the ipod turns on instead of stying black after you released powerbutton you have to do everything again. so try until it works.
