go to applications then utilities then open disk utility
on the on the left side all the hard drives will be listed. click on your ipod then click erase, look here click "erase" and then "ok". when it is done disconnect the ipod, open itunes and reconnect the ipod. itunes will tell you the ipod is corrupted and i needs to restore it. click ok and then wait for it to complete the restore.
go to start, my computer. in the new window your ipod's name will apear right click then click format. make sure that quic format is checked and then click "ok". when it is done disconnect the ipod, open itunes and reconnect the ipod. itunes will tell you the ipod is corrupted and i needs to restore it. click ok and then wait for it to complete the restore.
note: this might no work but will help in most cases, you hard drive may have just fail and then your out of luck
