Plug it in and enter recovery mode (hold sleep/wake and home button until iTunes recognizes it as in recovery mode). Then restore it and try again :)

Restore it in DFU would be easiest, you may have corrupted the iOS, just plug in the ipod to your computer, turn on the ipod, when it starts up, hold the power button and home for 10 secs, then release the power button and keep holding home until your computer makes a ding sound that a new device is connected, open itunes and click restore.
