sooooooooo ive owned my ipod for about a year and 2-3 months. Its the 20gb white one blah blah. I use it quite a bit. Probably now more than ever, i walk to school 4 days a week and use it on the 15 min walk each way, sometimes a couple times a day. I dont think its the battery, because it has no problem staying charged. First incident was last weekend, i plugged it into the alpine box that connects to my cars cd player, it began to play then stopped. I unplugged it from the Alpine unit and the "alpine" screen didnt go away like it usually does upon unplugging it. I let it sit and the battery died later, i recharged it, drove up here (2 hours) using it, then monday it did it again. I let it sit and the battery die, charged it and used it until today. Now, when i plug it into a charger, it doenst charge. Nothing on the screen shows that it recognizes being plugged in. The ipod wont charge when plugged in. I have no clue what the fuck is going on, but this fucking thing is barely a year old and its fucking up... fucking apple.
