argh... don't get too pissed, but for the life of me i can't find that website/thread that explains in detail how to change the battery in a 3rd gen (buttons above the wheel) iPod...

i've finally had it with my 1hour battery life (no exageration) and am ready to do a little iPod surgery this weekend...

thanks for the help! :D

I replaced the battery in my 3rd generation and i can't imagine heart surgery being any harder. The tools that came with were useless and became dull before i even got my ipod open. A pocket knife worked well and the battery was great till my iPod got stolen. Good luck!
