    Try one or more of the following:

    > Restart your computer

    > Uninstall & Reinstall iTunes

    > Reset Your Device (won't erase anything)

    > Go to My Computer (windows xp) or Computer (windows Vista & 7) and see if your device shows there.

    > Restore your device completely (will erase everything)


    Not Charge

    - See:      

    iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting

    - Try another cable. Some 5G iPods were shipped with Lightning cable that were either initially defective or failed after short use.

    - Try another charging source

    - Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.

    - Make an appointment at the Genus Bar of an Apple store.

    I agree with dj. Your battery did not get excercise (it needs a full charge once per month) and is dead. Replace the battery.
