You could try restoring your iPod and see what that does. That would be the main avenue of fixing the issue. Of course, if the harddrive is on the edge of dying, a restore might push it over the edge.
Here is a link with instructions to restore. It will wipe the iPod and then reload all of the music from your computer...
Now, since your iPod is older, there is a harddrive test if you think that might be the issue. You have to get the iPod into diagnostic mode and then select the HDD Scan...
It's a little complicated, so just be aware of that (assuming you want to run it). Try the restore first if you'd like just to make sure there isn't some corrupt file or glitch somewhere causing the issue.
