    How long has it been like that? If its been more than 10 minutes, then turn the iPod off (by holding the top and home button until it turns off) then turn it back on.

    He doesn't need to resort to DFU yet, he should play around a bit to see if there is an easier way.

    I was under the assumption that he has tried numerous times. My bad.

    So what happens after you try rebooting (after restoring unsuccessfully)?
