it may be because of you settings, if you go into the settings there is an option for sound controls and you can set it to the right or to the left, if its not that its your headphone jack itself and there is a repair guide on ifixit, just replace it, it is so easy to do.

Ricardo Drozdowski Junior, this question was answered almost a year ago ;-) I do not think that it is within your settings on this model. I do believe that you will have to take a look at the headphone jack and probably will have to replace it. Also, make sure that your headphones are ok. You may want to try new ones out first. iPod 3rd Generation Headphone Jack Replacement
