Unfortunately it seems like you have a bad hard drive, the iPod classic hard drives are very finicky and will seem to be recognized even if they are totally unsalvageable.

iPod hard drives can be purchased on the cheap through various online retailers, including e*cough*Bay and ifixit.

Necro edit: flash is a thing for iPods now! Check out Tarkan's iFlash adapters.

+ Agree with you on that one. I think the give away here is that the drive can not be formatted. Just had a whole bunch of those errors happen. New HDD will usually be the solution.

To anyone else that comes to this questions via a Google Search like I just did:

Hold Menu & Select/Center to Enter & Exit Disk Mode.
