Tried changing ports and cables? Have you done a reboot on the iPod (you didn't mention which flavor of iPod it is, I can give you instructions if you need them, but I need to know this).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Press and hold the middle button and the menu button at the same time. Continue holding for about 30 seconds (the screen will go black and it will reset). Once it boots back up, try plugging it in again.

Also, to rule out your USB ports, attach a USB device of some sort, aside from the iPod, and see if it works.
