The Devil's Advocate
The iPod 5 Rs

  1. Try Re-setting it.
  2. Connect to iTunes & enable Disk-Mode.
  3. Enable Show Hidden Files & Folders
  4. Go to your iPod and in iPod_Control under Music you will see the mp3 files.
  5. If the folder does not show any songs, then i would say do a Restore. A how-to is given on the above link.
