    I've just realized that my DiMAGE X1 won't charge when it's plugged into my cradle dock that came with my camera. When plugged in, the charge light illuminates for about a minute and then goes out, but when I turn on my camera, the battery indicator only shows 1/3 power.

    Is the problem likely with my cradle or my battery?

    Also, when I pulled out my battery, I noticed that it's a little bloated. I imagine that when the battery was new, the casing was completely firm, but now it's a little squishy on both sides. Is that going to be an issue?

    My best guess is that the battery is going, especially since you mention that it seems "bloated". The circuitry in the charger (cradle) is detecting some issues and either is being told by the battery that it's full, or stopping the charge process.
