I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.

Unfortunately, you need to restore the ipod to factory settings.

Open itunes in the computer and connect the ipod. Now, on the ipod, press and hold the power button and the home button together until you see an apple logo. The very moment you see the apple , let go off the power button , but keep on holding the home button for another 10-15 sec. You will now get a message in itunes saying that it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and needs to be restored.

Restore the phone now and finally select the option "set up as a new ipod"

Let me know whether this helps.
