Not today. I received the iPod ("100% functionality no problems"). And yeah, it talks to my computer just fine. But it won't talk to me. The front controls are completely disabled.
I can get the screen to come on by toggling the Hold switch on, then off. But nothing that I press on the keypad matters. And yes, Hold is disabled. When it's enabled there is a lock icon on the screen.
This is just fubar :-(
