ok so maybe just a battery change, I have changed my 5th gen classic hard drive without too much hassle so maybe you can do it yourself, plenty of youtube tutorials.

erm,
are you shure its a USB version? maybe it's a firewire version?? it'll only charge from the correct power supply....
if you got it cheep in/from the States could be firewire.

BTW only SOME 1st gen are being recalled; they haven't found my serial number as of friday!!
