Question about Apple iPod touch
This sounds likely it’s a USB power issue .Make sure you have a full power USB connection (many laptops and keyboard connectors only give 100mA max rather than the full 500mA, also do not connect via an unpowered hub either as this only PARTLY charges the ipod. Next connect it direct to the computer on a full power USB port or via a powered hub (mains transformer connected to it) and it should be OK.
Leave it charging on this for at least an hour before proceeding further. Make sure you have the latest itunes 8.0.2 (downloaded on your PC from www.apple.com/itunes/download then restart PC first) and reset the ipod before connection (menu and centre key till screen blanks then connect once it lights up).
Then say YES to the 'pair with this computer' Message if after doing the USB power check you still have problems you need to call apple for a swap for replacement... as batteries can be killed by improper usage apple has a page at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1726 that tells you how to get the most from your battery or the update could be iffy take it to either a friend with a Mac if you use a PC or a friend with a PC if you have a Mac - this can fix it if not try taking it to your local apple store or the shop you bought it from.
Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
