How can I restore my iPod Touch? (1st Generation)?

My friend gave me his old iPod touch because he knows I like old technology. It turns on but is stuck in recovery mode. I connected it to iTunes but it keeps saying "This iPod could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (5)." I understand that Apple no longer supports the software but I did find an archived website that had the download. I selected it when prompted on iTunes to use the file to restore it but it still won't work, any ideas on what I should do?
