I've had my ipod for a little over a year now. From day one, it has been babied with a $50 case and has been used MAYBE once a week. For some time now, I've been getting the battery charging icon with a triangle that has an exclamation in it. I've been trying to charge it on my ibook, as well as someone else's, it just doesn't hold it's charge! I've tried resetting it and that worked once, but to no avail and now it refuses to do even that. I called apple tech last night and the guy tells me, first of all, I'm out of warranty. Secondly, it's probably a hard drive problem, so I might as well "just get a new one." I was appalled. Why would I pay $300 again for a product that I know is deficient? Besides, who can afford that?!? HELP ME.
