    I have a 4GB mini, when I put it in the SHUFFLE SONGS mode and then try to click ahead a few songs I get a low battery error and have to restart the ipod.

    I sent it in to Apple for repair once they returned it without doing anything saying there was nothing wrong with it.

    Does it work normally in other modes? Have you tried restoring the firmware with the iPod Software Updater? :)

    it does work normally in other modes, I updated the firmware. The battery life doesn't seem very good, I get about 6 hours on one charge, the backlight is hardly ever on.

    Is that six hours of playtime? I don't think six hours is all that bad.

    All the same, I guess you could try calibrating your iPod's battery (if you haven't already) by completely discharging it and then completely charging it up again. :)

    I think six hours is pretty low, the battery is rated for 12 hours. I know I wont get that but I was hoping for about 8-9 hours. I drained the battery then recharged it fully, same results.

    I sent it to Apple again, hoping they will find and fix the problem.
