Question about Apple iPod nano 2nd Generation MP3 Player

2nd Gen IPOD nano dead batt.,not recogn.by computer or itunes

I have an ipod nano 2nd generation 4GB. It was in my purse & I found it on & playing several times over a period of months. Now, it will not hold a charge, though it will work when plugged via usb to my laptop.
I'm fairly sure the battery needs replacing because I've left it on the USB charger for hours & the battery life is unchanged.
My question is: would that cause it not to be recognized by my computer (including ''unknown device'' under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in Device Manager), ''USB Device Not Recognized'' message when plugged in & no sign of it anywhere in iTunes 8.2.1.6 (latest version)? I've already held the center & menu spots simultaneously until the apple appeared, removed the ''unknown device'' in the device manager & watched it return, rebooted laptop (vista home 64 bit), held center & menu, then center & left, clicked on various menu items & ''quit'' to next one since they simply displayed info I didn't know what to do with, plugged into different usb port... not neccessarily in that order...and nothing has changed.
Is it likely that a new battery will put it back in working order or are these (unrecognized & unseen) symptoms of something else?

Dont bother replacing the battery on your own or through a 3rd party because it most likely is the firm ware and apple will charge you a flat fee regardless of the issue. i have the same issue with my ipod, except that it would hold a charge for days before i tried to update it and had my computer die before it finished. now it tries to boot up over and over.
