    Go into DFU mode and restore.

    Put it in DFU mode.

    If you don't know how, use this.

    Hold the power and home buttons down (the iPod will power off after 10 seconds, but keep holding those buttons down)

    After the iPod powers off, release the power button (but keep holding the home button down)
    After a couple more seconds, you should hear that magical “ding dong” that means the iPod is coming back alive, and that Windows has detected it. You may even see a little “New hardware” popup in Windows. It is now safe to release the home button, and your iPod is in DFU mode.

    Now iTunes will see it as a DFU’ed iPod and should ask you to automatically restore its firmware, or you can press shift+restore to manually select the firmware.
