Question about Apple iPod nano
If reseting and upgrading do not work, you might have physical damaged. There are tiny little ribbon cables inside the unit, which are about the width of a hair strand, and damage very easily when pressed too hard - which is something everyone does the first time that scroll wheel doesn't work. There really isn't much you can do, other than getting it repaired.
Jsut make sure you tried to install the correct updater file first - LOCATED HERE - although it should not affect the scroll wheel - however, you it doesn't hurt to try!
Hope This Helps!

One of the major warnings Apple includes with all of its iPods is the permanent hearing damage that could occur if you have the volume on your iPod turned up too high.
To help combat the problem, the iPod comes with a feature that allows you to set a maximum volume level that your iPod can be played at that level is controlled by a combination that can keep others namely children from turning the volume up to dangerous levels.
The good news is, if that combination falls into the wrong hands, it can be reset.
Use your iPod's click wheel to scroll down to "Settings."
Press the center button located in the middle of the click wheel to select the settings menu.
Scroll down to "Playback" and press the center button to select it.
Scroll to "Volume Limit" and press the center button to select it.
Use the click wheel to scroll to the first number of the old combination and press the center button to select it.
Repeat this process for all four numbers of the old combination.
Use the click wheel to scroll to where you want the maximum volume to be set and press the center button.
Use the click wheel to scroll to "Lock" and press the center button.
Use the click wheel to enter the first number of the new combination when the message "Enter New Combination" appears on the screen repeat the process for the three remaining numbers.
Once the four numbers have been entered, your iPod's maximum volume will be set and your password will be changed.
hope this helps
