Your iPod's disk is probably badly defragmented. This happens naturally with time; the files which contain your songs and videos are broken up in parts and located in various parts of the disk. Your iPod needs to search all over your disk to get file information, taking longer than it would if your files each were made up of one part.
To defragment your iPod's disk, do the following:
1) Make sure all your iPod's music and videos are also on your computer, and in iTunes.
2) Connect your iPod to your computer, and run iTunes.
3) Click on your iPod on the left side of iTunes, then click on the "Restore" button in the middle of iTunes.
4) Wait for your iPod to finish restoring, then click on the "Sync" button to copy all your songs and videos back to your iPod.
1 Locate videos. There are four main places where you can find legal videos intended for iPod use. The iTunes store (where videos can be directly downloaded) and video podcasts are certainly the most popular, but digital copies from DVDs as well as personal digital videos can also be put on the device. 2 Import your videos into iTunes. If you have downloaded the videos from iTunes or have downloaded a video podcast from the service, this step has been done for you (as well as step 3), and you can proceed to step 4. However, if you are trying to put digital copies, or personal videos on the iPod, put all of the videos in a central folder on the desktop. Go to iTunes and select the "Add file to iTunes" to import the contents of your folder to the iTunes program. 3 Convert non-iTunes files. iPods only work with MPEG-4 videos, so if you are uploading videos of other formats, such as AVI or WMV, they will need to be converted with the iTunes program. Highlight the videos you need to convert and right-click to pull up a sub-menu. Select "convert" to begin the process. Alternately, you can drag the files into the iTunes conversion queue, which is on the right side of the program. You will see a notice when your files are finished converting. 4 Sync your iPod. When your new video files are ready, simply plug your iPod Classic into a USB port and then drag the video files you wish to put on your device over the iPod icon. The icon will then change to "syncing" status. Wait a few minutes while the videos are transferred. Once the icon has changed back to normal, simply press the eject button and unplug your iPod.
i recomend trying the arcsoft media converter 3 for starters and go from there
The iPod Classic OS is same as the Nano. However, it looks to be so close as to come with the same settings checks off. The code to run the FM tuner is on the Classic and should have been disabled but Apple must have forgotten to turn it off.
you need to restore your ipod touch by connecting it to your computer and clicking restore. make sure you have backed up your ipod touch before you do this or you will lose everything on your ipod touch.
I assume your iPod still functions OK as an MP3 player?
Are you wanting to automatically sync your iPod with your library, or drag the songs from your library onto your iPod?
You can modify the settings to auto sync or not, by attaching your iPod to your PC. In iTunes, highlight your device, and from the main window you can change the sync settings.
If this doesn't work, then try and reset your iPod - you do this by holding down the menu and center buttons until the "Apple" symbol reappears.
As a last resort (if the above doesn't work) you can restore your iPod, but this will set it back to it's factory state - wiping all of the music, videos etc off of your iPod (but it will not remove anything from your computer). In iTunes, select your device, and from the main window, click on the Restore button and follow the onscreen prompts.

Learn how to reset or restart iPod following a freeze.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on
