    Whenever I plug in my ipod nano (2nd gen), the screen lights up, but it does not start charging, and the ipod does not show up on my computer or in itunes, i've tried my ipod on a different computer and it still didn't show up, i've tried everything i've seen and nothing works. I have windows XP service pack 2 and iTunes version 8.0.1. The problem started yesterday when I plugged my ipod into my USB port and it froze, 5 minutes later it went back to normal but I started getting the above problem.

    Try a new USB cable and avoid using USB Hubs, use USB ports directly on the computer and ones with power to them.

    Should I just give up on trying to fix this and buy a new iPod?

    I tried my laptop, didn't work. I've tested all of my usb ports with my keyboard and a flash drive and they all worked fine.
