ipod 1st gen 2gb [partition unknown]

i just bought an ipod 2gb 1st gen of ebay which was advertised as fully working. when i switch it on it states use itunes to restore, when i connect it to my laptop it says do not disconnect / ok to disconnect and i can go no futher. when i connect to windows xp it states device not recognized. itunes does not see it and when i run the diagnostics test it states partition unknown under the hd info test. on my other ipod that works it says FAT32. how can i format this and get it back to factory settings?

any help will be appreciated

thanks
