I struggled with this issue for a while and finally found a post that helped me. Hold menu and the center buttons until the iPod turns off. Then, immediately hold the left and center buttons to pull up the iPod diagnostic menu. Scroll down to the option "Reset" and select it. My iPod was finally recognized by iTunes. Good luck :)

1)Reset your iPod.
2)Retry with a different USB or FireWire port.
3)Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates installed.
4)Remove iTunes software and then reinstall iTunes software from latest versions on the web.
5)Restore your iPod. See ?Updating and Restoring iPod Software? in the user's guide.
