Alright, so I fully charge my 3rd gen, 15gb iPod and plug it into my X360 via USB. Since the 3rd gens can't charge via USB, the X360 will use the iPod's juice. No biggy. I got like, five hours of battery life, right? Wrong. I play hexic 3d for a while, and after about 30 minutes or so, it shuts off with a dead battery signal. WTF? This is a new battery, too. What's going on, haha?

Whenever the backlight is on and the drive is being accessed the battery will drain much faster.

My other guess would be that the 360 is draining excess power from the iPod. Is the hard drive being accessed a lot by the 360?
