How to record an ipod?

In advance: yes, I've gone on Google.
I'm looking for a method of recording my ipod touch's screen, for a class project.
I've tried recording in a dark room and lowering brightness (which helps a bit), but nothing seems to be very effective.

Any suggestions?

(also, I'm using an insignia "HD-DV", if that helps. Yes, I know that my camera is crap.)

What Kamazar said.

This YouTube video (instructions are for the iPhone, but works for the iPod Touch too clearly shows what needs to be done.

Think he meant to record video off the iPhone screen. Not a snapshot.

Well, if you took like a million snapshots and put them together in a video, it would work. Though even if there were a million snapshots the video would only be like a minute long. LOL.

A million snapshots will be 700 hours worth of video

Well, this is helpful and all, but I just wanted a way to record my ipod effectively...

And yes, I wanted to capture video for my project, not screenshots.
