How old is this iPod?
Is your cable fraying anywhere? Make sure everything is pushed in super-well.
If you don't have a back up, isn't it still on your Computer's HD? that should be cool if you get a new iPod.

You might have more luck charging from Firewire on another computer if at all possible. Sometimes the iPods can get a bit picky as to how their little joules are received.

Try plugging it in to a power supply, then holding menu and the center button for 6-10 seconds.
This worked for me when mine went dead.

This is also listed in the iPod support pages where people should go to 'fix' thier iPod.
