I used it earlier today and now i tried charging it...I stuck the usb charger into the ipod, the charging battery thing came up and it doesnt do what it always does, it just shows the battery and the battery doesnt charge, just a pic of the battery and no animation. Then when i take it out, i cant turn it on, it just doesnt do anything when i push any button... :(

Yeah they act wierd sometimes. Chances are it was charged good. We should probably let the iPod battery drain down weekly or monthly to ensure good readings and life like the iBook or PB battery.

If I don't use mine for a couple of days, and it's not plugged in to anything, it will boot up with the Apple logo and take several seconds to do so.

USB iPod Problems

Before Tiger I always experienced problems when I plugged my iPod in via USB (iPod and Powerbook would freeze). I haven't had a problem with USB in Tiger though.
