Not entirely sure, I'd think if they still have the old style in stock they'd give you that. But then it's possible they'll give you the new style. Either way, if they agree to give you a replacement, you're getting a new nano, and you're at least as well off as you were before.

Have you conected it to your computer and done a Restore in iTunes. This will wipe everything on the Nano so you will have to re-sync afterwards but it often solves your issues.

My 4G iPod appeared dead recently (diagnostic mode said the harddrive was bad). An overnight format writing zeros to the disk and a restore and it's working perfectly again...

That happened a few times with my 3G ipod (The one that first had the clickwheel). It was annoying, you could not switch it offand nothing responded, not even connecting it to a computer. All i could do was wait til the batteries ran out. After i recharged it it would be fine. The third time this happened i'd had enough and took it back to the shops. I managed to exchange it for a video ipod about two weeks after it came out. Not had a problem since.

Have you run the battery down until there is no charge left and then recharged it??
It is best to give Apple a call and get it replaced though.

It could be itunes 7 thats causing this. My mini was working fine until itunes 7, then all of a sudden it would tell me the battery is empty when I knew there was still plenty of charge left. Just a few minutes before writing this my mini won't respond to anything at all. I'll leave it plugged in the charger and see if that will do anything, but this truly sucks. I was avoiding to buy anything since I'm holding out for the video Ipod.
