Is my iPod done for?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
(Fifth Generation 30gb iPod)

OK, a few days ago, my iPod stopped working, it gave me the combination triangle-with-exclamation-mark-sad-ipod icon, at first the computer (windows xp, macs are about 2 or 3 times the price in Israel ) didn't recognize the ipod, I forced it into disk mode, and tried restoring the ipod, when it reconnected, it told me that the ipod was corrupted, and I have to restore it, I did that, and it told me again, and I restored again.

Third time it let me use the ipod normally, although, no music or videos, only solitaire and so forth, and I connected it to the computer, and it didn't recognize it, and now I can't use the iPod anymore.

I also tried alot of the things listed on the apple site, to no avail, what else can I do now?

EDIT: Also, when I connect my ipod, if it recognizes it, it opens a window labeled "autoplay" and closes a few minutes later.
