Try starting the nano in safe mode im not so sure if the nano have safe mode but if it does and it is like the ipod video then its restart (holding menu + center button) then right went the apple logo appears press menu + play then it says safe mode after that try itunes restore.
Also can you still use it with you current songs inside the nano? If so use a different program to sync your music like this one http://www.ephpod.com/
What ipod nano generation 1 or 2? Because if its a 1 gen you can hack it to run another Os like rockbox.
