You might want to try it on a different pc if you have one there...

HI celeste,

I wonder if your cable has given out. the fact that it used to work
sometimes and now doesn't work at all suggests that perhaps the cable was
slowly failing and has now failed completely. It may not be the cable - it
may be something in the iPod itself - but trying a different cable might be
a good first step. Good luck.

Best,
Anna
