    Are you saying that you've restored it with the latest iPod Software Updater and it's still not working? If so, then you might just have to take it back to Apple. :(

    well i was able to delete everything off of it and then ipod installer installed it again...i think, and it began putting songs on my ipod again, but only got to the fifth song before it froze up and stopped. I unplugged it and im back to the folder message.

    That's indicative of a hard drive failure. If it's still within warranty, or if you have Apple Care, take it back the Apple Store. If it's an older model/out of warranty, I'm afraid you'll have to have a funeral for your iPod & then once the mourning period is over, get a new one. :(
