I started experiencing the same problem 1 day after (according to Apple records) my warranty ran out. Would anyone want to post the "other solution" they have, but isn't on their website?
I may have gotten mine working again, its currently resyncing up all my songs, so it will take a while before I know for sure, but it looks promising.
Here's what I did...
Uninstalled iTunes 7.0.1 (reboot)
Backed-up iTunes 7.0.1 library (xml and itl file)
Reinstalled iTunes 6.0.5
* Restored iPod from 2006-06-28 updater
Reboot
Kill all iPod/iTunes services from Task Manager
Make sure iPod Service is stopped from Services
Put iPod in Disk Mode
Start iPod Service
Connect iPod to computer
Delete the iTunes Libary files (xml and itl file) so that iTunes creates new ones when it is launched.
Launch iTunes
Add some files to your library
If it works, try adding the rest of your files.
* I had lots of trouble with this, but eventually got it to work. Seems like it was in disk mode and I might have also killed all the other iPod/iTunes processes from Task Manager the time it was successful in restoring.
