    Question 5gen Ipod Video Battery
    Hey guys, I've had an ipod video for about a year now and now when I watch video on it, the battery dies out in 5 mins. When i first got it, I could watch up to 40 or so minutes of video. My audio time hasn't changed much. I can usually listen to about 3 hours worth of music before I need to charge. Is this strictly a battery issue, or may something else be wrong? If it is a battery issue, what's the cheapest and easiest way to replace it. I've heard that you can DIY, but I was wondering if it was a hard process (it doesn't seem too difficult). Do you think the update that is coming soon will change anything? It's a 30g if that helps any.

    Thanks in advance

    Before you replace the battery, do a software restore in iTunes.

    Changing the battery is easy, takes maybe 10min. I've done a few and have bought my batteries from PDA.com.

    I figured out the problem. I didn't realize that there was a quick and a full charge on the ipod. I let my ipod charge for an hour or so and got about an hour of video.

    Thanks for the help
