Try entering disk mode a few more times, and be careful about it. There should _never_ be a time that you cannot get to disk mode.

So, it goes into disk mode and then shows a chargin icon, or what? "Wall charger appears" doesn't tell me if it's in the black and white disk mode, the Apple firmware disk mode, or what.

Please, describe clearly what happens. Have you tried plugging in a USB cable while in this mode?

I never said charge it.

You didn't answer either of my questions. Have you tried connecting it to your computer, and then while it is connected restarting it with Menu+Select so that the cable is plugged in when it restarts.

Have you tried connecting to a different USB port or a different computer?  Are you using a USB hub?

Do you have original apple wall charger? Because I tried to update my apple ipod firmware with another (not original) charger and that didn't work.
