    In my experience, you need to use the adapter that came with the iPod. I have never been able to do it any other way. In order for the iPod to restart, it has to be plugged into the wall.

    Good luck.

    I've had the same problem.
    Just plug it into something that's not a computer or won't put it in hard disc mode.
    Mine if formatted for Windows.
    I took it to the Apple store, they plugged it into a Macbook Pro, and everything was fine.
    So if it's formatted for Windows, plug it into an OS X
    If it's formatted for OS X, plug it into Windows.

    i dint try on macbook pro
    only tried it on my pc (windows)
    also i took it to phone repairs and he said
    the battery might be faulty.

    i looked at it today
    and saw another different type of empty battery icon on which like a very tiny battery and there is warning sign on
    i have no idea i tried with original apple ipod wall charger but didnt work
    if i take it apple store
    i am sure it will cost me too much
