Is anyone else having this problem with the Nano?

This morning I woke up and noticed that my beautiful blue nano wouldn't come on at all.. it was dead. Even though last night it had a full charge.. I quickly hooked it up to my computer to see what was going on.. the battery was completly dead.

Now and 1hour and a half later of charge time later and the battery STILL isn't even able to hold a small charge.. soon as I disconnect it from my computer the Nano dies. :eek: :eek: :eek: MY NANO DIED AFTER ONLY A WEEK OF USE!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

This is my 1st ipod so I don't know what to do.. can anyone help me with that?

PS: I noticed that my Nano was making a small nerve shredding atonal/buzzing sound when on(I had to bring the Nano close to my ear to hear it though) was that a symptom of a problem? I just thought all Nano's did that.

That's what the warranty is for.

Make sure they give you a brand new one. If not, you can always threaten to return it (which they must honor with no restocking fee since the unit is DOA).
