I would think that you have most likely that the connector on the logic board has failed. Of course make sure that your USB cable is working properly. You might need to try a new one first. If that still does not resolve you can

A:) replace the logic board available here http://www.ifixit.com/iPod-Parts/iPod-To... or

B:) replace the connector on the logic board. every now and then they do become available on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/USB-Female-Connector... or are for sale at most popular online stores that specialize in iPod parts, i.e.Demigods.com or milliamp.com and numerous others.

good luck and let us know how you are progressing....
