Have you tried factory restoring your iPod touch via iTunes, or performing a hard reset?
Performing a Factory Reset via iTunes
- Connect your iPod touch to iTunes and click the "iPod" button that appears when the iPod is connected.
- Make sure you're on the Summary tab, then click "Restore iPod..." and proceed.
Performing a Hard Reset
- Hold down both Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least 15 seconds. It will force itself to restart.

- Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
- Unsync all music and resync
- Reset all settings
Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
- Restore from backup. See:
- Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

Same thing is happening to me except on a larger scale its about 3/4 of the songs on my ipod. I've restored it about 8 times and the same thing happens.

I've already tried resyncing all of the music and wouldn't updating restore it automatically anyway? I'll try restoring again but I don't think it will work...

In itunes go to the music tab on you ipod, then uncheck sync music, and sync. when that is done, put all your music back on. This worked for me.

I tried this, but it did not work. But I noticed something today. The "Other" data on my iPod is almost taking up half the space (my iPod is 8GB). Did some research - found out that this probably means I have corrupt files. And I can fix it by restoring the iPod as a new device. But I don't want to lose my app data - I came a long way in Angry Birds :-)
Is there a way I can restore as new without losing app data?

"First you go settings/general/usage/music/then left swipe over music and press delete and you would think it deletes your music but it doesn't instead it deletes your other but make sure your ipod is connected to a computer while doing this"
as recommended by:
Next, usually restoring from backup eliminated the corrupted files. However, sometimes restoring to factory settings/new iPod is required.
This works for some app data:

I tried swiping and deleting the music and now there's four greyed-out corrupt songs instead of two! And my "Other" data is even more filled up! Now my only option I assume is restoring, but how can I keep my app data?

Is there a way I can do this for free?

Well, I already knew how to do that. Thanks anyway, but I might have to start over again.
