Re: ipod hd problem
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously
until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to
repeat this step.
then plug in to your comp and use itunes to restore to factory settings
Thats half of it, but...
These problems seem like you will need to go into disk mode,
Reset, then while the apple logo shows, hold play and centre, you will be in disk mode and should be able to use the HP format tool, then after a quick format, connect to iTunes to finish the process http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304508

I can hardly understand your question.
If you have an icon in the ipod suggesting to connect to itune, then get a computer with itune and connect the ipod to it. Click on restore in order to make the iPod brand new and restore it.
Before that,you can also try pressing and holding the power button and the home key until you see the Apple logo again, then let go.
listen in the ipod and if you hear click click click in some pattern you may need a disk. But try this anyway: try and put the ipod in disk mode and find it in my computer. right click on the ipod drive and format the drive. then disconnect and put in disk mode again and mount to itunes. and restore again
First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides
back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the
left, here's how you reset:
You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round
button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see
an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will
shut off, then back on.
