    Hello fitsy,
    And welcome to Apple Discussions!

    Have you tried a reset of the device yet? To do this, toggle the hold switch on and off, then press and hold the Select (Center) and Menu buttons together until the Apple logo appears. If no luck the first time, give it another shot or two.

    Otherwise, you may have to wait for the iPod's battery to completely drain. Once it has, go ahead and connect it to a power source long enough for it to power on. If the issue persists, you may want to reconsider restoring your iPod via iTunes.

    hmm what exactly happens on the iPods and on the computer when you connect them?, does nothing happen at all or does iTunes give any warning message or anything like that? try a simple reset for now, idk how for the shuffle (definitely on apple support pages though) but for iPods with screens hold down menu and center buttons for 6 seconds
