This is a critical error, and if it won't charge trough computer or trough charger then you have to bring it back to were you bought it.
I'm sure you will get a new one back, or in the worst case they will send it into fixing and you have to wait for like 2-3 weeks before you get it back, fine as a new one.
Hope this helps you, problems like the one you have can only be fixed manually from the inside of the iPod, and theres not much you can do exept what I've suggested for you.

first you should let it charge when not in use, apple makes there batteries cheaply and the more it hold a charge the longer the battery will last, secondly you can't shut off your ipod nano, sorry, lots of people complained about this, when you press the button it goes into standby mode and still draws power it will turn off after 36 hours of non use. so i recommend that when your ipod is not in use it is plugged in charging. good luck
on your itouch, press and hold the home and the power button until the apple appears and it reboots. do you have more than one item here? the ipod press and hold the Menu button and the action/center button untill it reboots. if neither work your charger is toast. get an a/c charger and charge them real good and you will be fine. Good luck
My friend has the same problem, and same with my brothers ipod nano. My friend took it to the Apple Store, and they said it was do to overheating, caused by leaving it on the charger to long. They could not fix her ipod, but have you left it on the charger?
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.
The battery may be going bad. The internal battery in the ipod has a limited lifespan and will eventually fail. When this happens the amount of operating time you get between charges will gradually decrease unti eventually the unit will not stay charged. It sounds like this is what you are experiencing.
You will want to contact Apple about the unit to get more informaiton on getting battery refresh service,
