Try resetting the iPod with it connected to your computer. It should case it to refresh and light up and start charging/connecting to your computer. If this does not resolve your issue, please do let me know :)
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

First, make sure the lock slider is in the proper position. I know, obvious, but you'd be surprised how often this happens.
Next, slide the lock slider to locked and then back. Then press and hold the Menu and Select (center) button for 6-8 seconds. Try a couple times if it doesn't work the first time. The ipod should reset and work.
If that didn't work, you can reset your ipod. But first, try connecting the ipod to your computer and see if it goes into sync mode. If so, wait for iTunes to load and then eject your ipod in iTunes and see if it works again.
