I don't know?  Does it still play?  Will it still update? 

If you have the music in iTunes, you can just erase and reinstall the ipod and it'll be fine. 

If the pod is the only place you have the music, first, shame on you, second, you can google for a utility (senuti works well on the mac).

It is possible that the HD failed, where did you buy it?

I would reset the iPod and if that doesn't work go into iTunes and reload it from scratch.
