Try restoring the iPod's firmware (http://www.apple.com/ipod/download/). This will delete everything currently on the iPod though.

Hopefully you don't have a dead hard drive. :o

DO you have auto sync on. maybe try turning it off. Also do the 3 R's. Reset, Restore, Return (don't think that's it but it's something like that;) )

Also, if you are connecting the iPod through firewire and you have a firewire iSight, that could cause problems. There is a known bug that the iSight takes up a bunch of the firewire bandwidth and you can't connect other devices while it is. If this is the case for you, either switch to using USB to connect the iPod or always unplug the iSight when you connect the iPod.
