I've not heard about a lot of dead D300. Jim Fenton went to almost every forum on the Internet & made a huge deal about his. Yes there were issues with some battery stuff. Nikon has fixed that with firmware updates. So as far as I know - that's all taken care of.
If you have not updated your firmware - than that's probably the problem....
