    Did you try and reset it? I haven't done it in awile but IIRC you hold down menu and play for a few seconds.

    With the newer iPods...when they die, sometimes you have to leave it connected to the computer for up to a half hour or more before it has enough charge to recognize the iPod. I read that on apples site when it has happend to me before...with my nano and video. I hope that is your problem.

    my ipod just randomly fixed its self when i plugged it back into the dock, sorry about this guys. anywya i have one more question, does anyone no if leaving ur iPod in your dock kills the life of the battery, because i always do that and it seems like my iPod battery drains so quick now, and i dnt use it nearly enuf for the battery to be dead.

    So I guess I was pretty accurate with my previous post. Glad to hear that it is now working. I think that leaving it in the dock would effect the battery life. If you like the looks of the iPod docked, why not leave it in their and just unplug the USB cable?
