Viruses cant be in songs. otherwise the song wouldnt play. if a virus would be made for the ipod, it'd be in the software updates. unless of course your running a mac :)

Viruses are designed to affect specific kinds of computer systems depending on who wrote it because different computers do different things. This is why a virus for Windows cannot affect a Mac. It depends on what the person did to the song or movie that causes it to behave like a virus when played on certain computers or electronics.
