The iPod Nano digital media player, like any electronic device, can freeze and quit working properly. When this happens, reset the device to restore functionality and unfreeze the device. Performing this reset process allows you to continue using your iPod Nano device without losing any of your digital media content.
Press and hold the "Sleep / Wake" button on your iPod Nano. Press and hold the "Volume Down" button while continuing to hold the "Sleep / Wake" button. Wait approximately eight seconds for the Apple logo to appear on your iPod Nano's display. You have now unfrozen and reset your iPod Nano.
To download songs to iPod nano:
m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update
automatically, the download begins.
Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you
want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other
items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from
that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually
without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano.
While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status
window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red.
When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.”
If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod
nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on

Try pressing the menu key and center key at the same time and waiting until the gray apple screen comes up. This will reset your settings but I know whenever my iPod goes funky I just do that and it's fine. If that doesn't work contact your local Apple store.
ITunes contains a volume leveling program that works with every recording in your library or you can select each one individually by going to the library, selecting get info with the right mouse button, select options, and change the volume with the control you see on the screen and press ok.
Press and hold the center button while holding down the menu button. This will reboot your Ipod. Check your IPod cable to see if its shorted. If might have transferred a song and crash in the middle of the transfer.
