normally that would mean that the hard drive of the iPod needs to be replaced - any clicking sounds in the past ?

since the link i wanted to add is a little bit censored, i can only recommend you a googe search with: "iPod diagnostic mode" <- use it incl. the " - the first result should give you some informations about the diagnostic mode and how to verify your harddrive without the use of a computer

Go to www.apple.com/support/iPod like it says.

There are several different warning signs that Apple uses. Please take a look at this link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1378

to identify which one you have and the probable fix.
