If your iPod is acting funny, and you want to see whats wrong, you can do a diagnostics check. To enter Diagnostics Check mode, hold down center button and menu, till the apple logo appears. Then before the logo goes away, hold down center button and previous, then the screen will turn green. This will come up:

iPod Diagnostics BuildID: **** (Apple Logo)
SVC (The Date) V. ****


To move to a different selection, press previous or next. Move to a sub menu with the center button. To exit, go into the power sub menu, then select Reset. I have only tried this on a iPod 3rd Generation Nano.
It works on the iPod Video (5.5) as well. I'll have to try it on my grandma's 1st gen Nano.

on cover flow, instead of scrolling, you can press fast forward and rewind to go to the next album
