so, ipodmods.com officially rocks.
they've resurrected my dead ipod for considerably less than it would have cost to replace it, and the turnaround time was amazingly quick.
my diagnosis was correct-- dead hard drive. they replaced it. the ipod updated fine and is playing away happily over my stereo right now. all the seams are tight and the connectors and trackpad and everything seems just right. no scratches on the case that i didn't put there :)
unfortunately, i had no idea that my ipod was nearly full. i thought i only had 5 or 6gb on it; turns out i have over 9gb, and it's a 10gb drive. i should have asked them if they could put a 20gb or larger drive in there for me! oh well. i'll work with it.

Yay for repaired iPods!
I've heard that like a computer, it's bad for an iPod to have a nearly full drive. Not like it will blow up or anything, but it won't run as well.
