ipod restore possible without the wall unit?

So, I have an older Ipod (20 gig, black and white with scroll wheel). I accidentally hit restore and now it says I have to plug it into the wall to reset factory settings, the problem is I loaned my wall plug in to a friend who was traveling. Is there anyway to get my Ipod working again without plugging it into an outlet?

I tried doing some searches, but don't really know how to narrow it down. Thanks.

Yep. Just plug the iPod into anything with a USB port that is NOT a computer. PS2/360/Cable Box...etc.

Thanks a lot! Unfortunately I didn't get this info until this morning and I am already at work without my Ipod, ah well, it'll probably take a long time to recopy all the music over anyway.
