I have an iPod 5th gen. It was working with a XP box and a USB cable. It locked up and now it isn't recognized by XP at all. It's not that it shows as an unrecognized device, it doesn't show at all. It doesn't show that it is charging either. I have a Firewire charger and it still charges with it.
I've done all the standard repairs (five Rs), putting it in disk mode, try other computers, tested USB ports, etc. It does the same thing on all the other computers I've plugged it into and they work fine with other iPods. I'm looking for any other suggestions before I have to send it for repairs.

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.

There are two 5th gen iPods, A1136 model is the older 2005 model, not the later 2006 model.
Here is Apples link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#ipodfifth2 which will show the differences, but not by model number. The reason I know this model number is the first 5th gen 2005 is because I have one. Also older 2005 should have '2005' engraved on rear.
USB device not recognised" - means windows needs driver to function. As soon as you connect USB device it check driver in cache it is available it detect smoothly you can perform else it generate errors.
Try connecting it to a different computer with a different USB cable. If it still doesn't work, it'd be helpful to know more details (does the iPod work properly other than that, is it possible that the pins at the bottom of the iPod where you connect the USB cable are damaged?).
