    See here: iPod Displays a Red "X" Icon


    Note that it is often the sign of a hardware failure, usually with the iPod's hard drive.  You can try slapping it again your leg with a bit of force as it may just be that the drive's read/write head is out of place.


    If no luck you'll want to have your iPod serviced or replaced either by Apple or a third party repair company.
