      Try this, i hope it helps:

      Okay, so just so people are sure that they have the same problem I did, I'm giving a little background on my problem -

      I have an iPod mini and I've had it for 2 and a half years now. About a couple of months ago, it would just stop midway through a song and say something like 'low battery, please re-charge' even though, there was more than enough battery time left. So I would go home, stick it into the charger and as long as it was in the charger, it worked just fine. Then as soon as I took it off, within a minute into hitting play, I would get the same error message again. I even went so far so as to charge it undisturbed for two days and nothing worked.

      So after calling Apple and finding out I'd need to pay $77 just to get a new battery (!!!) and was considering getting a new one, I decided to do one last thing and try putting the iPod into disk mode. As soon as I put it in disk mode, I reset it... and it's been 3 days now and I haven't gotten that error message since.

      See link below for how to put your iPod into disk mode:

      Putting iPod into Disk Mode


      Note: It will no go into disk mode while plugged into charger or computer. Unplug it from charger reset it again, and follow the procedure.

      PS: It may just be a case of waiting for the battery to re-charge. Have you been charging it for a while and it still indicates 'low battery'?

              Call Apple Tech Support, and if its under the warranty period you will likely get a free repair and/or replacement.

              It could be your battery altogether that needs replacing. But do not do it yourself if your ipod is under 1 year old because it will void your factory warranty.

              Here's a tutorial on how to replace ipod battery:

                    hopefully your ipod will land safely in ipod heaven...only if songs on it were not pirated or downloaded free of charge.

                          I agree to that after what all you have tried and said here.
