    Nano question
    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.
