GReg, red circle with X is most common for hard drive failure. Get yourself a USB-to-Zif adapter, disassemble the iPod using this guide. Check all your connections and make sure they are properly seated. If they are, remove the drive (if you have a USB-to-Zif adapter, try and access the hard drive with that. However, it is most likely your hard drive. Hope this helps, good luck.
