but then I connected it to a wall charger, and it began charging like normal.

Did you try a different USB port?

Thanks for responding, Carolyn.
I don't think this is a problem with peripherals. That wall charger I referred to is an Apple product; when the iPod is connected to the wall charger, it charges perfectly fine. It's just the Macbook that randomly stopped recognizing it. Very bizarre and frustrating.
That SMC link you provided was broken, unfortunately. What does resetting the SMC do?

The solution ended up being simple. I just did an iPod hardware reset by holding the center and Menu buttons for ten seconds. After is was rebooted, I connected to the Macbook and it synced with iTunes like normal. Problem solved.

I did the same thing: held the Menu and center buttons for 10 seconds, connected it to my Macbook, but it still didn't recognize it...
Do you think it helped because of the hard drive-replacement? Because I know mine is perfectly fine.
