you corrupted the main boot header on the device congratulations you now have a apple paperweight beglad you came you came here.

To fix this issue you kinda needed your iPod in disk mode which can only be done if the device was functional the reason for this is you would go into disk mode and run disk utility and format the device in disk utility then do a restore which corrects the issue.

Now for the bad news.

this option doesn't work on iPod touches and the iPod nano as well so the device cannot be formatted and your device is a paper weight sorry to tell you this.

That seems bizarre. They (Apple) can't just restore it? It's just a small computer, is it not? I'm not arguing, that just doesn't make any sense to me. Matt, how old is it? Warranty maybe?
