    my 5.5G 30GB iPod Video was charging when i ejected it. i waited for a bit and then i started to smell something in the room. i didnt know what it was for a bit so i kept going on my computer.

    then i took my ipod off and then screen was frozen
    it turned off
    then i smelled the same smell i had smelled earlier on the iPod.

    was this a short or what?
    its still under warranty so could i just go to the Apple store and get a new/refurbished one?

    any help would be great thanks.

    Your description sounds like the "burning" smell came from the iPod. Without a doubt I would take it to the apple store and get another one. They will do one of three things:

    1) Send it in for repair or at least to be looked at.
    2) On the spot, give you a refurb 5th generation.
    3) If it's your lucky day, give you a new 6th generation! (I highly doubt it...):D
