If the battery completely drains with a flash-based iPod, will everything be erased? This question will decide if I get a Nano or Classic.

The information will be retained. Flash memory is "non volatile". It doesn't need power to retain the information it holds - it only needs power to CHANGE the information it holds.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
