I bought an iPod Color 30gb used yesterday and it's having some weird problem.



Basically, it's constantly telling me that the battery's low with the little battery with a sign on it. It's been charging for over 8 hours. When I disconnect the charger it turns off, so when I press the center button it starts to start up by showing the apple logo and then just shows the battery + sign.



I don't think it's the battery as it's been doing this for a solid hour. The hard drive sounds like a healthy iPod hard drive when I put it up to my ear.



Should I see if I can put it in Disk Mode and then, if I can, restore it?



I bought it on a whim at the thrift store for $15 and I don't really feel like returning it so I'm hoping I can find a solution even if it's going to be replacing a component.
