    Hey there guys-

    I've adopted a 1st gen iPod Touch from my mother, who rarely used it. It worked fine for the first few weeks, but then all of a sudden it would shut down, as if it had no battery life, and then start back up again. I plugged it in to my computer to charge it, and this happened even while plugged in. The battery has never actually been completely drained even though it keeps turning off as if it was dead.

    The weirdest thing is, when I plug it in and the syncing message shows up on the iPod, it has a picture of a giant empty battery in the middle. Contradictory to this, the battery symbol in the top right corner is shown as green and full. It is also shown as full in iTunes. Even if iTunes says its full, the iPod restarts itself. What the hell is going on?

    Oh, furthermore, I've restored it multiple times. The problem even happens if I have no apps or music on the device.

    Someone stole my Classic and I am desperate for some music. Can someone help me?
