i(pod)Trouble!

So, I have a 5th generation video iPod, 30g. And it has recently started randomly shutting off on me and won't turn on for about a good 5 minutes later, and even then it'll shut off right after I choose a song.

I thought it was the batteries at first, but when I plugged it in to charge on my computer, nothing happened. It didn't even show up as connected to my computer at all, the iPod itself was still dead during this. Although after I press a couple buttons on the iPod it shows the start up screen, then the " do not disconnect" then the iPod menu....then dies.

Could this be just a battery issue? (Although it won't run even when it is plugged in?) Or is it something else? And if it is something else I am heading to the apple store in about a week and can they do anything about it? Or am I iFucked?

    I think that's a battery problem.. I have a weird problem as well and no one around here seems to be able to figure it out.

    If no one can give you a better answer, try posting it at iLounge. There's bound to be some iPod savvy people there ;-)

    Agreed. It sounds like either the battery contacts are clean, or maybe the battery contacts aren't making a solid connection all the time (I don't know how the ipod batteries go in, so I could be totally wrong).

    The ipod batteries are built in to the ipod. So yes, you're totally wrong. :)
