Photoshop: Can't Nudge Layer Selection

I'm using Photoshop 8.0 on a Windows XP machine.  The file has several layers, two of which are rasterized text.  I have been able to select one or the other and move the layer image by nudging (moving) it using the CTRL+Arrow Keys.  But now, all of a sudden, I am unable to nudge the selection.

What are the possible causes for this?

I've tried making a copy or duplicate of the layer, I've tried closing and re-opening the file.
As far as I can tell none of the layers are locked.

As TheRookie32 mentioned,the move tool must be selected and it should work. You shouldn't even need to hold down the Crtl key to use the arrow keys.

Thank you for the suggestion to use the Move (V) Tool.  I had forgotten about it.

It turns out the Path Selection tools was selected and that was preventing the selection from moving.  Once I selected any other tool, I was able to move a selection by holding the CTRL key and using the arrow keys.
