    Hi Guys,
    I submitted a post on this topic back on Nov 17, 07 and had purchased my 80 GB Classic about the last week of October. At that time it had the 1.02 software in it and I did have a one time battery drain in the first week or so. I read about different fixes here on this site and did update to the 1.03 software and took a few other suggestions also found on here. For the first thing, I removed the cover flow from the menu as suggested and I also now press Menu before pressing and holding the play/pause to shut it off. It is now January and I have not had another instance of the battery drain problem. Right now I have 1,150 songs on the main library playlist and I also have 12 full length movies that I converted myself. I run this Classic on a armband at work for 8 hours and it plays roughly 3-6 hours each day and is turned on/off at least 20 or more times a day and I still have not had any further problems. Maybe it's luck or maybe the 1.03 upgrade and some helpfull hints have helped in this.
    Good Luck.:)
    Mr. Hoz

    Hi guys,

    I've been reading your posts and I can asure you that this problem has been fixed. You only need to update your itunes + ipod software. And UPDATE your IPOD! this is very important, it wont do it automatic unless you do it (so it only will update your itunes). After this, you should be able to use coverflow with no battery drainage.

    My first iPod classic 160GB drained on me twice. I had firmware 1.0.3. I took it back for another unrelated issue. The iPod that I have now is OK. I have firmware 1.0.3 and removed Cover Flow from the menu. I always make sure that I go back to the main menu, wait a few moments then click and hold my play button. I finally enable the hold button. Then, to be extra sure, I put it to my ear to ensure the hard drive really did turn off. All is well now.
