alright, so i tried to install ipod linux on my first
gen 4 gig nano and it needed to partition my ipod. so
i backed up my music and did the install. Well i
retried the install and didnt work again, so i gave
up and did a repair on my ipod through itunes. when
the restore was finished my ipod was not found, i did
the 5 r's and whatnot and itunes still does not
recognize it. help?
Have you tried reformatting it in Windows?

Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
