    I recently bought a new 30G iPod, burned Cds onto my computer, put them on my ipod and deleted the cds to save space. I only recently realized that my battery life is short. It only lasts about 3.5 to 4 hours and it only takes about 2 hours to fully recharge when dead when it should take 4.5. Was just wondering if anyone elses has had this problem. I was told by and apple store employee that I should "kill" it with disk utility and charge it from dead. Any comments would be of help.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish!
    Unless it will cause you undue stress, I would go ahead and do what the Apple guys says, chances are it's just a bug in the battery sensor (thinks it's full when it's not).

    Just make sure you put the song back onto your computer first! :D
