Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging. Low-powered USB port iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.
Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information. Connect directly to computer If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or
FireWire port on the computer. FireWire port on a Windows PC The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in.

Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Believe it or not, many people have resolved this issue just by unplugging (from the wall or the power supply, doesn't matter) the PC for 15-30 minutes. (This allows all the capacitors on the motherboard to fully discharge) If you have a laptop, unplug it and remove the battery.
If it only happens with the iPod and no other USB device, let the iPod drain down completely and plug it back in.
Other things to try:
A new USB cable
Uninstall ALL the USB ports from the PC via Device Manager and reboot.
To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included
iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some
models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode).
When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the
battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power
USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.
To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store)
1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected).
2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter.
3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet.
4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock.
You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.
don't freak out. What we'll do is systematically check the different
points where a problem could be hiding, correct it or eliminate it, and
then you can return to your normal iPodding. This could be no big deal

we go ahead and troubleshoot your problem, lets quickly run through
this checklist, just to make sure it is not something obvious:
Check your connections (USB fully plugged in? iPod connected?).
Plug the iPod directly into the computer (don't use a USB hub).
Try a different USB port.
Use a different cable (ask a friend if you can borrow their USB cable).
Remove all the other USB connections (sometimes other USB devices can cause a conflict).

Close all programs that are currently running.
Plug in your iPod.
Try rebooting the computer
