Your stuck in DFU mode, hold the sleep button and home button for a few seconds, and then let go of the home button.

It's probably still in DFU mode (has a blank screen when in DFU). Try restarting your computer, firing up iTunes, then connect your iPod. iTunes should then detect it and offer to restore.

You don't want to restore, you'll lose all your work, though according to your other post you might have to.

I never said to restore, just describing what the user would see. One step at a time...
