Have you left it in to charge for an extended period? I had the same thing happen a while back when the battery got totally drained because it wouldn't turn off. Plugged it in and kept unplugging it because it wasn't charging. finally plugged it into the wall and forgot it. 30 minutes later it was charging, no problem since. Maybe that is the case with yours.
Or, you could have fried everything and lost all your music... Bad Joss.
