***White Screen of Death***
This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish the installation before disconnecting the iPod. Try these steps. Reset the iPod: 1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off. 2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears). 3.You may need to repeat the reset several times. If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.
Put iPod into Disk Mode:
Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot anyway. Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in. 1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off. 2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears 3.Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).
Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

Hi, just Hold down the home key and power key then plug the cord to your ipod to the computer then get on itunes and restore it
Also i am going to show you how to fix the semi-common ipod error that renders your Ipod unusable. Until now!
hings You'll Need:
* Computer w/ itunes * Ipod touch or Ipone * USB Cable for either device above. * Your fingers (preferably your thumb)
Start-up your computer and log in. Open itunes and leave it on the screen.
Now, hold down the lock button on the top of your device until the power off slider appears. Slide the arrow to shut off your ipod.
Now plug the USB cable into your computer. Make sure that the Ipod is not connected yet!
Hold down the stop button on the device and plug the USB cable into the device. Keep holding the stop button until you see the USB cable with an up arrow into an itunes symbol appear on your screen. This means that the connection to your computer was successful and that you are in recovery mode now.
Now click ok, and download and install the latest Operating System to your Ipod. You will lose all of your data on this device, so once you are done you have to re-download everything.
That's it. Now your device is working again, and it has the latest OS. It will be super quick, and all you have to do is restore your songs, apps, and other data and you have a good as new device!
Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge normally, just enough so that it can come on and sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, wait few minutes, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.
Yes, the iPod will show that it is charging on its screen. Disconnecting without ejecting can cause data loss of whatever is stored on the iPod Ejecting is when you remove the iPod from the desktop by dragging its icon to the trash or clicking on the down arrow next to the iPods name from within iTunes.
If you use the library computer, usually a Windows based OS, you'll need to click on the iPod icon from the task tray on the lower right of the screen. You can right click to select the remove option
