You may need to reset it. Put the hold switch to the OFF/White position. Now toggle it ON/orange then back off again. Then press and hold both the MENU and center buttons on the iPod and hold them for a good 15 seconds or so. Your iPod should reboot starting with the Apple Logo screen.
If it doesn't work the first time, give it a second or third go. Sometimes it takes a few/several tries.
See this thread as an example of what I mean by needing to try it many times...
From my original post:
"I tried to reset it several times and nothing happened."
Sorry, I realize I kinda went on and on in my post and you may not have seen this. I just wanted to make sure I explained EVERYTHING as I feel that I could get the best help if everyone knew EXACTLY what I was experiencing. I am aware of how reset it, and believe me, I have tried it 25 times. I have just been sitting here doing the same thing praying to God I get a different result each time.
I have a first generation ipod nano, have had it for about 2/3 years. I recently got a ipod Touch free with my brothers purchase of a mac for college. Since I took the Touch, my dad decided to take the nano for his first ipod. I've been helping him update it since Father's Day 2008 and recently it stopped working. I charged it for 9 hours during the day and then tried to see if it would work, it did not hold a charge. Today I got home from my workplace and tried to charge it again, reset it several times and it did not work at all. I plugged it into my XP laptop and it doesn't recognize it and it now screeches when it is plugged in. Any suggestions besides the FIVE R's?
