My 3rd generation ipod which I bought in July 2007 does not last long than 2 – 3 hours. The battery cannot be dead already to my knowledge. Explain what could be the reason for this?

Try the following fixes:

You will need to try calibrating the battery of the iPod. That means that you will need to fully charge the iPod, and then you will have to allow it to drain till it is completely empty. The iPod will power off on its own and then it will display a spinning progress indicator. After that, you will need to recharge the battery until it is completely full and them check if there is excessive battery drain after that.

You will also need to minimize some of the activities that you might be using the iPod for. For instance if you are using it for information transfer and listening to music at the same time it means that a lot of power will be consumed in the process.
