First the obvious (but needs to be asked) - is the iPod charged? I'd try charging it with a wallcharger first (or at least an USB port on the laptop (no USB hubs).
If that doesn't work visit the link below to Apple's support documents that have additional things to try when you get the Battery (!) icon.
Hope this helps!

Hi truth_raa. Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be due to the USB Drivers. However, to confirm the exact issue, please try using any other USB Devices with the Computer and check if they are working. Also, please check if there are any yellow exclamation marks next to the "USB Controllers" in the Device Manager. Please press the "Windows Logo" and the "R" keys simultaneously.This should open the Device Manager window.In the Device Manager window, please check for any yellow exclamation marks next to the "USB Controllers". This indicates if there are any USB Driver conflicts. Please perform the above steps which I have mentioned above. Then, let me know the results. Hope this helps. Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.
The exclamation mark next to a title in iTunes means that iTunes
cannot locate the song associated with that title (original file cannot
be found). The cause for this is an incorrect setting of iTunes
preferences when copying iPod songs.
Before copying your iPod songs, setup your iTunes preferences as
Open iTunes preferences (in the Edit menu)
Select the Advanced tab.
Make sure the box next to "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when
adding to library" is checked.
I assume this is a USB mouse and it should work. Attach the mouse and check your device manager that can be accessed by doing the following: Find the icon for My Computer (XP) or Computer (Vista, Win 7). Right click on it and then choose the hardware tab. When that tab opens, click on device manager. Check the mouse item to see if your mouse is recognized. It may have an exclamation mark on it. If so, right click on it and delete it. Check the USB devices at the end of the list to make sure there are no exclamation marks on any. If there are, delete them. Restart the computer to see if the devices are found. This should work. The only problem you could have is if the mouse itself is bad or if your motherboard is having a problem.
If your computer is recognising other ipods and not yours there is a possibility of somethin being wrong with your ipod.You can always get it replaced.Or else maybe you should check the USB cable you are using to conect.
Finally try your ipod on another computer.
This oughta help you arrive at a conclusion.
