Step 1: Check to see if your iPod can still be charged by charging it using a wall charger and wait for it to fully recharge.
Step 2: If it does charge fully, try using your iPod normally and see how long it lasts. If it lasts for only 2 hours, your iPod battery may be dying. If it doesn't charge at all your iPod may be dead.
Step 3: If either of the cases are true then you have two options:
If your iPod is less than a year old, you can bring in your iPod to the Apple Store and have it replaced for free on the spot as part of its 1 year warranty.
If it is older than 1 year, you can go to the Apple Store and have them replace the battery for a fee
If you are looking for a new iPod anyway, go to the Apple Store with your old iPod, and tell them you are looking for a new iPod. They will give you a 10% discount when you hand your old one in.
My little brother gave me his ipod shuffle for the same reason, saying the battery was dying and would only play for half an hour after a full night's charge. However, I went ahead and gave it a shot anyway and it always lasts for several hours (long enough that it's never died, so I don't know an actual time).
Anyway, it turned out to be a usb hardware problem. His old computer wasn't built to charge via usb, so the ipod would take what little it could and flop five songs later. I don't know what kind of hardware you're running, but perhaps you could try plugging it into a different computer and seeing if that chnges things?
I would also recommend looking into wall chargers, if that is the case. Otherwise the convenience factor kinda goes out the window.
I think you may just have a dead battery. The batteries on the iPod last a long time but they do go bad after years of use. Occasionally a battery will die almost immediately without warning. Also, use an AC wall charger to verify it's actually being charged. USB cables work for transferring music, but are a weak source for charging. If you need a battery click here or check ebay they are fairly inexpensive to replace.
Your battery is probaby running out of power faster because of the iPods ae. You can either bring it to and Apple store and have it fixed or send it to them. There are also repairmen around that should be able to do it for you. There also is a site called ifixit.com which will sell u the new battery and tell you how to replace it but beware THIS VOIDS YOUR WARRENTY! It also has the chance of you doing something wrong and breaking it even more... So my suggestion is to send it to Apple or get it fixed by a certified Apple technician.
What is your problem? The ipod doesn't die. Believe it or not but there's a battery inside of the ipod that if you want it to be repaired. Don't send it to the apple company, they'll charge you a **** load to replace the battery. You can find an ipod battery $10-$30 easy on the net&the proper instructions on the net you can replace the battery yourself!
It's possible you damaged the battery but not likely. The ipod has a circuit inside it to prevent overcharging (i.e. it stop scharging when the battery is full).
I would try the five R's at apple's website and then try charging it again and see if it fixes the problem.
See the five R's here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303940
you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.
