iPod not being recognised

I bought a iPod last week and it worked fine for a few days. I was able to import files no problem.

Now, when I plug the USB cable into the bottom of it, it says it's being charged (but the battery meter doesn't seem to have gone up after I take the cable out) and the pod icon isn't on the left-hand panel in iTunes.

As a result, I can't transfer anything from my iTunes onto my iPod as it's not recognising that it's plugged in.

I've tried putting the USB cable into different ports, plugging and unplugging, restarting, doing things in different orders, but nothing.

Anyone got anything to suggest before I ring the supplier?

did you by any chance install service pack 2? just a question because i installed service pack 2 and my ipod stoped getting recognized. had to remove sp2


try uninstalling everything that has to do with your ipod. (itunes, ipod updater, ipod service) and reinstalling it all. also maybe you might want to system restore to back when it worked, in case something happend that stoped it from working.
