It seems to be ok now... I had to go out and it ran out of battery, when I switched it back on it appears to be fine.
If it happens again (hoping that it doesn't!) and i do the reset.. will that remove all the music that's on there?
Sorry for the ignorance
Thank you for the answer

No, doing a Restore (using iTunes) erases the iPod, re-installs the software, and sets it to default settings. A Reset just "restarts" the iPod, like rebooting your computer if it locks up for some reason.
When it ran out of battery power, and you connected it to power, it basically did the same thing as doing a Reset.

Thank you, I'm in Afghanistan and my iPod is what helps me escape reality. I thought I was going to lose all my music but because of your advice I was able to reset it and now I have issues except for syncing my iPod with iTunes, it says it needs to be restored for some reason =(. Again, thank you for your help.

There is probably some type of data corruption on the iPod's storage, which may explain why iTunes does not want to sync with it (unless you do a Restore to give it a fresh start). However, the iPod may continue to work "as is," as long as the data problem is with song data only, not data involved in making the iPod operate (although you may have some songs that do not play properly). Unfortuately, if you do a Restore, the iPod's current songs will be erased.
