    I have a 10gig 3g iPod and the iPod Shows it as having half Battery Life and then Right-away it dies... It only gets half its life... It this a software problem? As, it only gets about 1 1/2 Hours at most, when it did get 3-4 Before... I don't think its the battery.... Any Ideas?

    After making sure you have backup copies of everything on your iPod (particularlly if you have been using it as a hard drive) do a full reset to factory using the iPod updater. You will have to reset the name etc and fully reload you music library. This can often fix problems like this.

    Yep, That was the first thing I did, and it still does, so I would surmise that the battery may be dead or a connect might be messed up... Any more ideas, or do I need a new iPod?
