Damaged hardware is responsible for the most obvious iPod
sound problems. In such cases, Apple may be able to help you fix the problem,
depending on the status of your warranty.
All iPods have a one-year warranty according to Apple's
Software problems can also affect your audio.
For example, downloading a non-certified Apple application
can stop your sound from working correctly.
Returning your iPod to its original factory settings fixes
many of these software glitches.
Plug in a different set of headphones and test the sound.
If that set works, your old headphones were the cause of
your audio problems.
If your iPod still doesn't work, proceed.
Remove an application on your iPod Touch if you installed it
right before your sound stopped working.

Sounds like they did not use a iTunes to copy the songs to the iPod.
iPods/Phones/Pads, etc require iTunes to create a sort of file that tells the iPod where the music file is located at on the mp3 player.
So if they just plugged it in via usb and drag and dropped mp3 files over then there is no file to tell the iPod where they are.
So you'll need to drag those music files off of your iPod back onto a computer and then use iTunes to import the songs into iTunes and sync your iTunes library to your iPod.
Once you've downloaded and installed that, open it up.
Now, you have two options as to how you're going to "sync" your iPod. ("Sync" means synchronisation - loading the music onto your iPod). There are two ways, automatically and manually.
Automatically is where you have your music library on your computer. When you plug in your iPod, the computer checks the music library on your iPod and does what it has to do to make the iPod's music library identical to the one on the computer, whether this means deleting things off the iPod or copying music over. This is great if you just want to manage one set of music. You just manage it on your computer, then when you plug your iPod in you don't have to worry about it - the computer just does it. This is the simpler option.
However, this means you need to keep a copy of all your music on your computer - and you can't plug your iPod into any other computer. That's why you can manually manage your iPod. When you manually manage your iPod you drag and drop the music you want on to it - the computer DOESN'T do it automatically. This is good if you don't have much room on your computer, so you can't keep a copy of the music - or if you want to get music off more than one computer.
Plug your iPod in to the USB port of your computer. Follow any prompts that come up you should be presented with a screen under "Devices > Your iPod" (on the left hand side of the screen) that shows your iPod and some information about it (software version, how much space you've used, etc.)
If you decide to manaully manage your iPod, then there's a tick box towards the bottom of the screen with "Manually Manage my Music". Obviously, tick that if you want to do so.
If you choose to manually manage your music, then you'll need to drag music from wherever (My Computer or from your iTunes library) onto the icon for your iPod. However, if you choose to automatically manage your iPod then sort out your music libray and add the music you want. Then, go to the "File" menu and hit "Sync iPod". The computer also does this automatically whenever you plug the iPod in.
The iPod reset utility will reset your iPod shuffle back to it's factory settings. It works for the following shuffles: iPod shuffle (1st Generation) - iPod Software version 1.1.5, iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) - iPod Software version 1.0.3 The reset utility will fix the following issues. 1. The iPod won't play music and can't be restored using iTunes 2. iTunes won't see the iPod but you can see it under "My Computer" in windows or under Apple System Profiler on a Mac. 3. iPod shuffle (1st Generation) is identified as a device in "Recovery mode." iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) is identified as a "USB DFU device."
You have to have administrator privileges to run the restore software and it will wipe out all the information on the iPod (including all your music) and install factory software back onto it. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9, or later, Win2k with sp4, Win XP, this won't work on Vista. Download the file for the program here: MAC http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102formac.html Windows http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102forwindows.html
Install the software onto your computer, plug your iPod into the USB port and run the reset program, it will ask for your permission to reset the iPod, answer yes and the process will proceed. After finishing the reset procedure then use iTunes or whatever software is used to access your iPod and load your music. Enjoy your toy!
this is obviously a power or connectivity issue,
check that the device ( your ipod ) is correctly seated into the logitech speaker system, and check the power cables are connected according to the manual which came with the logitech speaker system.
question u may ask yourself? - does the ipod work as it should on its own? (without non-apple devices/components attached to it) - if it doesnt - take to an apple store or call or seek apple support.
it sounds like your ipod is low on power from source.
i hope this directs you in the right direction, party on!
Hey dosi5, Based on the information you provided, it sounds as if you may have performed a full restore on your iPod, returning it to its original factory specifications and settings. Generally this may only be done by accessing your iPod through iTunes and clicking on the "Restore" button, but you should have been presented with a warning of some kind and a number of restore options before doing so. Without knowing the exact iPod model you use however, I would not be able to provide you with specifics regarding the restore process. Just in case though, I've provided a link to Apple's walkthrough for the Classic model below. http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/classic/# You'll need to click on the "Restore" tab to view the walkthrough, or the "Troubleshoot other iPods" link on the left-hand side of the page for instructions for other models. Unfortunately, once a system restore has been completed you'll need to sync your iPod with your iTunes library in order to reload your music files. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead.

download itunes. plug in ipod. wait for it to load. then RESTORE it to factory setting, when prompted, enter your name and uncheck the automatically sync.....AND update. itunes is what you use to put music on your ipod. if your songs haven't already started to move over to itunes....click file, then add folder, and pick the folder that your music is in (usually MY MUSIC) if they are already mp3 format you wont have long to wait, but if they are not, you will need to wait for the songs to convert. once converted, you just simply choose your songs and drag them to your ipod.
