I doubt it is a hardware/HD error.
What makes you think that? The 1439 error is often signs of hard disk damage.
What if you do a low level reformat of the iPod's HD using Disk Utility and then try restoring it in iTunes again?

That's a good point. I guess I didn't consider a hard drive failure because prior to the restore, my music files had been on the iPod for years and the iPod was still functional when plugged into the wall.
I'll give your suggestion a try and then let you know what happened.

I'm happy to report that this worked! For some reason when I try and update to the latest version of the iPod softwarre, I get the same error but as long as I leave the version as factory default, I'm good to go. Works like the day I bought it, only now with a much improved battery.
Thanks for setting me down the right path.
