Your ipod is exhibiting symptoms of a bad motherboard.
I would plug it in the charger with an a/c charger for a while and try it.
If you have been playing this ipod on a dock, chances are it has a bad motherboard.
You also may need a new battery but i don;t think the battery is making your ipod have the symptoms you explained.

i have replaced many motherboards in the 30 gigs due to people playing them on docks and the boards frying, mostly the charging circuit, and the sound. There is also a chip that comes lose on the 30's if your turn the ipod on with a headphones in and squeeze the ipod on the right side of the clickwheel just down from the middle of the click or >> button the ipod may create sound. if so your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Good Luck

Ipod player wont charge ipod

I probably have the same type charger / player that I also purchased from Wal Mart. If it plays your ipod it should also charge it. Make sure the lock button on the ipod is unlocked and it's turned off. If that does not work keep it unlocked and leave it on. On systems like we have that are not iHomes they sometimes have trouble figuring out what brand they need to charge.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod

For it to recongnize, maybe try:
1: go to control panel
2:add hardware
3:connect your hardware device and click "yes i have connected the hardware"
4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list
6:scroll down to windows portable devices
7:and choose MTP device
this should make it so your ipod is now recognised by the computer
