You need to authorize your computer because that iPod is already registered to your friend on his computer. I would suggest backing up all of the data (you will need the user/password), reset the iPod, install the desired software/firmware, and install all of the backed up data onto the iPod. It would probably be better if you do this on his computer, as that will be where he syncs, downloads content, and backs up on.

Otherwise:

Do you use the same kind of computer as your friend (Eg: Mac vs PC)?
Have you tried using different versions of iTunes?
Have you tried downloading the FW manually?

just make sure u have the latest Itunes and plugin the ipod and hit restore...as simple as that

then it askes if u want to restore as factory or only firmware if u do only firmware everything will stay on the ipod

itunes downloads the correct firmware for u

but u need to authorize the computer

Yep Apple simply dropped support of the touch 2nd gen less than 2 years after it was still on retail sale. Which meant apps people had actually purchased for it were automatically removed before they were advised that the new version wasn't supported on their device. The response from Apple: "iPod touch 2nd gen is no longer supported. You need to upgrade your iPod to a newer model in order to receive updates to your apps" In the same year that Jobs passed away and all.
Not sure if this issue has been fixed yet but since iTunes knows damn well what version of iPod you have someone's either stuffed up bad or Apple's happy to block access to last supported versions of apps. Either way its a bit of a **** act. I can guarantee you if Microsoft did something like this it would be the biggest IT outrage of all time.
