I recharge my new ipod (nano 4th gen 16gb) mostly with a generic usb charger (input 110/220 VAC to output 5VDC 500mamp) It doesn't show that the battery is getting charged but it does.ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT? I noticed that the full battery doesn't last 40 hours of playing music like apple said, but much less. STILL ANYTHING WRONG? Thanks!

If it's charging even though the indicator doesn't show it, I would say that there's nothing wrong, though only the manufacturer of that 3rd party charger could say that for certain whether that's expected or not. I am not sure where you're getting the 40 hours of battery life. According to the 4th gen nano specs page, it's rated for up to 24 hrs of audio playback, or 4 hrs of video playback. Consider looking at http://www.apple.com/batteries/ipods.html if you still think your battery is depleting too quickly.

Make sure you use apple's earphones, set the volume to 50% and keep the screen off when you test.
try connecting somebody else's ipod to the charger to see if that shows the charging sign,but i don't think it is a problem.
