Your battery is most likely dead to the point where it can no longer hold a charge, which is the reason that when you unplug it from the computer, it dies instanly. Batteries are pretty cheap going up to about as high as $25 and if you get it done at a ipod place, installation should not be that much.

Reboot your ipod in Disk Mode then try itunes again. Also make sure your itunes is setup so it boots up when it sees it. (that way you know it sees the device)
As far as seeing it "usb mass storage" that is a good sign. You maybe able to recover items with a good friend called LINUX which is compatable with apple software.
Hold the select and menu button and once the device turns off hold the select and play button and hold it until it says Disk Mode.
Once booted in Disk Mode try to connect via usb.

Have you attempted to reset the iPod yet? If so and it failed you should attempt to force the ipod into disc mode and restore using iTunes. Below is a step by step on all three parts of the resolution. If for any reason your issue is not resolved after completing; please do let me know. :)
Learning how to reset or restart iPod following a freeze.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod. The screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center. --------------------------------------------------
After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.
The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option
1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option
2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option
3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option
4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.
When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.
Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

how old is the battery it might need to be replaced
Charge the iPod
If your iPod touch suddenly goes blank while you are using it, the culprit could be a low battery.
Prior to the screen blanking you may see a low battery indicator.
If the screen is completely blank, try plugging the iPod touch into a power source and letting it fully charge before attempting to use it again.
Restart the iPod
If you've got a white or gray screen, try to restart the iPod.
Sometimes a simple restart will solve the problem that initially caused the white or gray screen, and the iPod will work as expected once you have turned it off and on.
Reset the iPod
Resetting the iPod Touch goes a step further than just restarting, and it is a good option if you've charged the iPod and restarted and you're still seeing a blank, white or gray screen. Press on the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons simultaneously for at least ten seconds before releasing the buttons. At this point, you should see the logo or a battery icon, if the phone needs to be charged.
Restore the iPod
If nothing else has worked to remedy the malfunctioning screen on your iPod touch, try restoring the device. Connect it to your computer and open iTunes, then click on "Restore" which is found under "Summary." Be sure to back up your files when prompted, because the restore will change all of the settings on your device back to the factory default.
If even this does not work, you almost certainly have a hardware issue, and will have to take the device to an Apple store for examination and possible replacement.
hope this helps

Restarting and Resetting iPod touch
If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting iPod touch will likely solve the problem.
Restart iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPod touch. To turn iPod touch back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.
If you can't turn off iPod touch or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A
reset should be done only if turning iPod touch off and on doesn't resolve the problem.
Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch
for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button
until the application quits.
Reset iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the
same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
