How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it. Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.
Unfortunately, unplugging it during a restore or transfer is the one sure way to kill an Mp3 player. Before I became an expert, I too killed my first Mp3 player by unplugging during a firmware upgrade. Call Apple and see if you are under warranty, because that is definitely covered.
In theory you could reload the firmware on the device, but it just won't work, because you can't force the PC to recognize it at this point.
Last ditch effort - reset three times, and then plug it into computer while holding in the right part of the wheel. No promises.
Turn repeat off in the menu.
