david finlay, first make sure that your dock connector is clean, use some isopropyl alcohol and a few puffs of compressed air to clean it out. Try to place your iPod into diagnostics mode. Check [http://www.methodshop.com/gadgets/ipodsupport/diagnosticmode/index.shtml|this site] for instructions and what the results mean. I do think it may just hang up on the hard drive test. If it does, I would consider replacing the battery first, follow [guide|561|this guide]. If a new battery should not resolve the issue, get a USB-to-Zif connector adapter and check your harddrive. There is a good possibility that it has failed and that your iPod can not access its firmware. Hope this helps, good luck.
