    Could be that there has been space reserved for data and not music.

    Check in iTunes on the iPod screen.

    Enable disk use, and open it up in the Finder and see if there are any files stored on the drive. If anything, you may as well just restore it.

    Yea, I've never heard of something like that before. If even after restoring you're having problems, take it over to Apple; see what they say. Might get lucky and maybe it's something they can fix for you right there, nice and easy.

    A corrupted file isn't a virus...
