It sounds perfectly fine. :P
The only problem is that the battery is very low! You have to wait for it to charge so that it can come up onto your computer, silly. Just let it charge for a few minutes and then I'm sure it will work fine. If there is still a huge problem with it, maybe you should call apple and see what they have to say about it.

Look inside the slot that you plug in your iPod, is there an orange piece of paper? If there isn't, then your iPod might have been damaged from something (such as water getting inside) which may prevent it from being recognized by your USB slot. Every Apple product does this and it voids the warranty I believe.
If there is an orange piece of paper visible, try going into "my computer" to be sure it's being recognized by your computer as a whole. If it says "_____'s iPod" then it can recognize it and it is iTunes that is causing the problems. Try a reinstallation and replugging your iPod in and out a few times.

it's a broken battery, your dock station probably charges through the firewire port and is strong enough to power up the ipod without a charged battery, the USB port alone isn't. if you're tech savy or have a tech savy friend you
can use a ipod repair guide that will show you how to replace the battery step by step, or you can go to the ipod repair nyc.
Get a new cable if everything else works that is your problem Usually, unplugging, replugging it and then rebooting solves the problem.
your other options are a driver issue..either with the ipod drivers,
itunes, or the USB drivers for your computer itself. since your ipod
video and psp work fine, you can rule out USB drivers, but that doesn't
rule out additional driver problems.
the other option is there's some kind of failure with your ipod..and
sometimes if a device starts drawing power before doing any kind of
communication with the computer (like when my rockbox-hacked ipod goes
into charge only mode) then windows will assume there's a hardwire
issue. the best way to determine if it's an issue with your ipods are
take them to another computer and see if they work. if they work
fine...try uninstalling and reinstalling itunes (back up your music and
database) and see if that solves the problem. if none of that solves it
and you know the ipod shuffles are good..then your system has suffered
from the mysterious driver failure that's plagued a lot of systems. and
generally the only real solution is to reinstall windows from scratch.
