Did you try to charge overnight? The USB port takes hours to charge a dead iPod.

What happened to the wall plug/charger that came with the devices? A PC or other device does not make a good charger for iPods. Since a standard USB port supplies only about 1/4 the current of Apples charger.
original charger cable was broken a while back but cable i was using before formating laptop worked,, should i maybe try buying a new cgarger cable from apple direct??.. it was my brother who done laptop for me and i'm sure he asked me something about disconnecting my i pods but i'm not quite sure.. i'v tried leaving both on charge but still nothing,, when i try to connect my 3rd gen nano i get a notification saying usb not recognised but with my 2nd gen nano it doesnt even get that...
