    Hi yall!
    Thanks for taking the time to read my problem!
    Well, I just bought an iPod Nano.
    It's great and all, but it has one problem...
    Without the backlight ON, I barely see anything on the screen, even in daylight..
    Is that normal, or I don't see very well, or the ipod nano is designed to be put in backlight mode all the time??
    Please help me because it uses alot of battery!

    That sounds normal. On my 40gig Photo iPod, without the backlight, I can read it, but I need a lot of external light and the stuff on the screen has no color.

    I have my iPod setup that everytime I touch the wheel or hit a button, the Backlight turns on. Then I have it set to a 5 second delay to turning off. I get good battery life, maybe try playing around with the iPod settings to get a good balance of what fits for you.
