I had a similar issue after my kids played with some apps on my wifes touch.
I plugged the Ipod into my laptop without opening Itunes. I pressed and held the Home button and the sleep button until the power off showed on the Ipod. Once that screen closed I let go of the Sleep button and held the home button until the computer recognized the Ipod. (The Yahoo article said it could take as long as 4 minutes). I opened my Itunes after this and it read the Ipod as an Ipod in recovery and restored the factory settings after they were downloaded. I resynced the Ipod and it works fine now.
Hope fully this helps and I apologize if my writing is not up to forum standards. I very rarely post on any forms.
