3rd Gen iPod charging problem

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Hi, a friend gave me her ipod to fix, and on looking at it thought it needed a battery replacment, which i have changed and it now has about 5 mins of battery life left. anyway it can connect via USB for data transfer but will not charge through firewire (tried a few cables/chargers) as i know it wont through USB.

anyway.........anyone know whats wrong with it?

    I bought an aftermarket battery to fix a friend's 3Gen and it got 8 hours+ after the fix.

    Nope was all correct hence why it worked, guessing its dead from the smoke srtains on the inside (charging capicitor? maybe?) oh well... bring on the next iPod
