Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player
Is it giving you the red x icon? http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1463
check to see if your ipod is under warranty https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do
If it is not under warranty, apple would charge you over $100 to fix it.
The red x means that the hard drive is broken.
The hard drive can be fixed by resetting it by holding the menu and center button, and as soon as you see the apple logo appear on the screen hit it on the side on padded carpet or couch. make sure you hit it on its left side (left in reference to picture above) if it does not work the first time try again except a little harder.
(you are doing this because the arm inside the hard drive that reads the information from the hard drive is stuck in the middle of the drive, and and hitting it on its left side will get it unstuck)
The only thing that you could break normally when you hit the ipod on its side would be the hard drive and because that is not working you have nothing to loose.
