Device malfunctioned

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

When I plug my iPod Nano 3rd generation into my computer it says; "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognise it.
Also the screen it black and restarting it doesn't work.
When I turn on iTunes nothing happens but when I manualy restart the iPod, a device pops up just saying serial number and that I need to restore iPod, when I do this nothing happens.
Is the iPod just broken or what?
