Lindsay, it does sound like a battery problem to me. It probably works on your car charger since it applies a higher charge. Also, when you plug it into your computer, try to avoid a hub and use the USB port that comes right of the motherboard, on a pc that is usually the ports in the back, not sure about Mac's. It is also possible that the cable may be faulty, if you use a separate one between your car and your computer. http://www.ifixit.com/iPod-Parts/iPod-Cl...
