Is it an older iPod?
If it makes a strange sound it might be the little hard drive inside acting up, however it is hard to say anything for sure.
Seems like you have done the things you should do when it starts acting up. Maybe someone else have other suggestions other than bringing it in for service?My Blog: Apple Laptops

Give it a gentle tap on the side. Seriously, my 60 GB pod gets stuck sometimes and a gentle tap on my knee gets it going.
It's a sticking HD. Not much you can do to fix it, but this may work.Try my custom Mac Forums Search Engine: Mac Forums Google Search
