Either you got a faulty surface mount regulator IC or you got a corrupted flash memory. Try pressing play button, then alternately press volume down (-) and Rewind (<<) buttons. When the "FORMAT? Press Menu" appears, press MENU BUTTON. A LOW LEVEL FORMAT will be in progress. When it's done, reload firmware recovery using MPIO Utility.
If however you nothing appears on the screen afteryou pushed the play, rewind, and minus buttons,or still it doesn't power up, you've got a faulty regulator IC. It is the five pin chip colored black with the markings "PHK" (use a magnifying lens to confirm) located on the left besides the battery connector (facing up, with the earphone jack on the top). If you had micro soldering skills, then you can remove the chip and replace, if you can find a replacement...

I had the same problem. Went to the Apple store and the technician said that the IPOD battery ran down to low (battery level showed red) and the USB port on the computer was not strong enough to recharge it. He used a rechargeable adapter that pluged directly into the wall (adapter cost about $30) and recharged it enough for me to take it home and recharge it on my computer.He said to never let the battery level drop below 5% unless you are going to recharge it using the adapter that pluged into the wall. I bought an IPOD rechargeable travel kit from Target for $20 and used it to recharge my IPOD. My IPOD works fine now. The Technician also said at some point the battery will need to be replaced (in a year or two depends). Will cost about $59 to replace it (don't quote me on the timeframe or price of replacement, this may have been just for my IPOD but thought this would be useful info for someone.
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

- Yes, in order to charge this device, all you need to do is to plug it in
- The battery doesn't run down no matter how long your are not using it. I had one and i didn't use it for over 6 months and it was still working.
- Are you able to see it as removable drive under my computer?
- Try connecting it to a different USB port or a different computer
- If it is viewable under my computer, try to see if you are able to transfer files
