You could try using your earphones with another device to see if they are working properly. For example, I think my earphones have a broken wire in them because when the earphone plug revolves up or down in the jack the sound cuts out. When I turn the plug around a little, the sound comes back. (I am sure you had the volume turned up :)
If you hear sounds from only one earphone then most likely there is a broken wire to the earphone that is not producing a sound. It is difficult to determine exactly where the wire is broken and repair. I suggest you get a new earphone.
Most MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or
download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Does your iPod come on? If not, your battery could be bad.
If you can see the music playing, but cannot hear anything, you could have a bad earphone jack or a bad circuit board.
You can tell if it is the battery the iPod will not come on at all unless it is attached to the computer or to a power outlet.
If you can move the earphone jack around while playing music and hear something, then it is the headphone jack. If you move the jack around and hear nothing, then I would suspect the circuit board.
If you have a device that can play your music out of the USB port on the iPod, you can make sure that it is the circuit board that way. When the circuit board is bad, music will not play out of the headphone jack or the USB port. Hope that helps.
Your mp3 player works like a hard disk, make sure that it was not moving when you are listening to your music. If the problem is the same try to use a new headset/earphone on it. Loose connections on your headset/earphone makes you think that your mp3 player skips.
If you have to adjust your earphone (even if you used other earphones) just to get a normal stereo sound, then the problem is with the player's earphone jacks. If that's the case (and assuming the radio feature of the player also manifests the same problem), then you may need to call the tech support guys at SanDisk for advanced troubleshooting, or possibly replacing that player.
I found their tech support contact number at their website upon consulting prior issues I had with my player.
