Hi! YOu need to disconnect your ipod from the pc.
Put the ipod into diskmode by following these instructions-
Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.

Not sure what you meant by "restarted" but sometimes it takes "resetting" the ipod by plugging the cable into a reliable power source and then holding down both the menu and select (center circle) buttons for more than 5 seconds.

My ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod when i turn on my 160gb ipod it reads a big red x and the apple.com/support


This indicates that the hard drive inside the iPod classic has gone bad.

Check Apple's Warranty web page to see if your iPod is still under warranty: https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do

Simply type in the Serial Number located on the back of the iPod, and your location. Who knows, if you are lucky, you may be able to send it in to get it fixed/replaced for free.
