2nd generation iPod Touch isn't syncing properly. Is it worth fixing or should I just look into buying a refurbished one?

For the past 2 months, I've had the following problem with my 2nd gen iPod Touch: When I connect the iPod to my Mac via USB, I can't get iTunes to recognize that the iPod is even connected. I've been able to recharge the iPod, but it doesn't show the battery life bar as it usually does when charging.
I've used a variety of different cables and chargers, and I think this may be an issue with the iPod's USB connection.
My question is: Will repairing this through Apple potentially cost more than the price of a refurb unit? I checked the Mac store and refurb iTouches are $149 for an 8GB unit.
