Download the latest update for iTunes and the iPod. Restore the iPod. See if that works.

thanks for the quick response.

i checked the problem on the apple help website and found how to resolve this problem. 
i had to change the time setting to somewhere in the USA, and then restore my ipod and then change the time setting back to UK and it all worked fine.

thanks again

That's quite a strange fix!

Also, it's strange how the OP has got two posts in this thread, but his total number of posts is 1. :s
