I had exactly the same problem - and came across your post when trying to find a solution. IN the end I solved it myself. I managed to get iTunes to recognise the iPod by opening it as a normal hard drive under Windows and then renaming the iTunes database file. I believe it is that file which was corrupted - iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesDB
After that I restarted everything and it worked fine, allowing me to restore.
