Take it to an Apple Store in your area or Best Buy and see if they have any solutions to the problem. If the battery is still doing that there has to be something internally wrong with the player.

HOW TO FORMAT THE IPOD


Hi marksoncaran...

Since iPods are basically big hard drives with special software and a screen, the hard drive in your iPod needs to be formatted.
Formatting is essentially the process of prepping the drive to talk to the computer it connects to.
Luckily, you usually don't have to worry about formatting your iPod.
Formatting happens automatically when you first set up your iPod.
If you use your iPod with a Mac, during this process it becomes Mac formatted.
If you use it with Windows, it gets Windows formatting.

If you want to clear the hard drive...the way you will format it you will double left click on "My computer" when the window opens you will have to find your Ipod amonst the listings...right click on it and select "format"...the follow the instructions

Help! 30 GB Gigabeat won't hold a charge and seems to be wiped :(


Sounds like a built in glitch ... You might want to take it back under manufacturer's warranty and get a completely different MP3 Player/iPod, because it sounds like a scamming item - for $400 I'd demand answers.

It may sound a bit cheeky, but I find reputable models, like Goodmans, JVC and Sony work without a problem, and buying cheaper models with mass GB space would seem a bit too good to be true.

The 5th Generation iPod (iPod video) were made and sold in 2005. Batteries inside iPods tend to last 2 to 3 years (4 if you hardly use them). It could be time to replace the battery inside your iPod.

Ipod 30gb battery shuts off in 30 minutes


your issue could be one of 2 things.
Either your battery is becoming old and needs to be replaced or your mainboard is malfunctioning and causing the low battery signal.

If you have your music library backed up in iTunes, I would connect the iPod and restore the firmware. You can accomplish this by pressing the restore button in itunes.

If your battery is more than 2 years old, replace it and see if the problem goes away,

Ipod doesn?t mount


First, you should download iPodRip off http://www.ipodrip.com/ and backup all of you music ect on your ipod (iPodRip is compatible for Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5). Once you have done this try and reformat the drive through itunes.

IPod Battery


You should try using a different USB cable and connecting to a different USB port and seeing if the problem persists. If it does, the problem's probably with the iPod's logic board.
