    You have to put your iPod into DFU mode. Then your computer and iTunes should be able to recognize it.

    Manually. I forgot how this is done, however. Let me find you the information.

    1. Plug your iPod into the computer, and open up iTunes
    2. Hold both the home and power buttons until the device turns off
    3. EXACTLY one second after the iPod turns off, release the sleep/wake button, holding the home button still ( the apple logo SHOULD NOT BE ON ).
    4. In about 20 seconds, you will see your iPod appear in iTunes, but the screen on your iPod will still be off. You are now in DFU mode.
    5. RELEASE the home button as soon as your iPod appears iTunes. If you fail to do so, your iPod will simply go back into recovery mode.

    It doesn't matter if it is not recognized by iTunes in the beginning of the process. If your sleep button is not working you have bigger problems.
