    My 5G 30GB is about 11 months old, so I'm trying to decide whether or not to buy applecare. Does anybody know of any common issues with the 30 gig that I should be concerned about? I haven't had any problems so far (knock on wood)

    I don't know of any specific problems with the iPod 5G, but I'd get it. From my personal experience, I'll always get Applecare. I'd be iPod-less if it wasn't for it. My 4G's hard drive just died for no apparent reason and I got a new one in about 15 of being at the apple store. Also, I think you can send in your 5G right before the warranty expires and tell them the battery doesn't fully charge. They'll give you a new one, or at least change the battery.

    you could always just ebay it and buy a brand new one. you'll take a small loss that's somewhat mitigated by you not having to buy applecare anymore. that's what i did w/ my 5g which was about to be out of warrantee. it was almost the same price for me to ebay and buy a new one as it was to just buy applecare.
