It was working just fine the other day, then all of a sudden it locked up and the song that was trying to play was displayed. It would not do anything from there. now it is telling me to plug it in to my pc. I did that but nothing happened. when i try to power it on it says low battery and then shuts off but when i plug it into the charger it will not charge.

It sounds like your iPod may have a hard drive that has developed bad data blocks. When the iPod tries to play a song that has been written to a bad data block, it will then skip that song and move to another song.
You can find replacement drives at sites like ebay, or by searching Google. We also have them available for sale.
Hope this helps!
After 3 1/2 hours, the battery went dead. I waited a couple of minutes, then plugged it into my computer to see if the battery would charge. It started charging. A few hours later I went back to check on it, and it showed a full battery. I disconnected it from my computer, and turned it on. It came on, but the screen just said "Low Battery". I then plugged it back into my computer, and the screen said "Rebuilding Library". I left it for about a 1/2 hour, and it was done. I unplugged it from my computer, turned it on, and it works now!! Hope this helps out everyone else who has the same problem.
Have you tried holding the select (center) and menu buttons together? This will completely reset your iPod to its factory settings, whereupon you can plug it into your computer and sync your songs back.
I'd recommend restoring the firmware to the latest version as well, even if you had the most current version installed, as this will usually aid with these kinds of software-induced problems.
