So, you've bought an iPod and are super excited about putting your music on it so you can listen on the go, but you don't know how to start. First you have to figure out how to get your songs to your iPod, then you can listen to your heart's content.
This How To will tell you how you can get moving to the beats sooner than later.
Be sure your iPod is not on "hold". Move the bar at the top of the iPod from hold (at right) to manage or release (at left)
Press the center button on your iPod to turn the iPod on
Connect the flatter, wider connecting piece to the opening on the bottom of your iPod (This may have a minus sign on it)
Connect the USB side of the cord (this piece has what looks like a cactus on it) to the USB port in your computer
ITunes will automatically open. Click on the image of your iPod (at left). This will open your settings for whenever you connect your iPod to the computer.
Initially, it may be easiest to let it automatically update your iPod. A screen will come up to ask you if you would like to automatically sync your iPod. Click "YES".
ITunes will do the rest. The top window will show the progress of the data transfer. DO NOT disconnect your iPod.
Once the window says "Update Complete", eject your iPod to safely remove it from the computer by dragging the image or icon of the ipod on your computer to the trash (which will change into an eject symbol), or clicking on the eject symbol next to the iPod icon (at left).
Disconnect the cord from the computer and iPod
Listen to your music
Tips & Warnings
These instructions are most useful if you have already installed iTunes and charged you iPod prior to connecting it to your computer.
Do not disconnect your iPod until it says "iPod Update Complete" at the top of the iTunes screen.
I faced the same problem. In fact, you can use an ipod to computer
transfer program to help.I personally use Cucusoft iPhone/iTouch/iPod to
Computer Transfer.It helps me to transfer my
songs/videos/photos/playlists etc from ipod to my new computer directly
and safely.It works well for me,you can give it a try.

It even has step-by-step guide on the whole process.
Try restoring the firmware if that won't work, you got a mechanical defect that has to be repaired.
To fully restore your ipod:
connect ipod to itunes
Hold home and power button for 10 sec
release power button but hold home button until you see an icon with a power cord.
Let itunes restore the ipod.
The ipod should let you do a restore in itunes with the computer that last synced the ipod. This is the only way to remove the passcode.
If it wont simply show up on the computer, plug the ipod in, hold the power button and then slide
to power off. Press the power button, as soon as the apple logo appears
press and hold both the top power button and the home button together
until the orange triangle appears. This should put the iPhone into
restore mode, open itunes and restore.
Hi, if the bottom screen briefly comes on with a white screen. There is a issue with the top screen, it is either the top screen itself or if there is damage to the hinge it will more than likely be the cheaper option the ribbon cable that threads though the hinge to the top screens PCB board.
