I'm having problems with one of the batteries in my 350D, i'm using the Canon battery grip and it's all working except one of the batteries isn't charging properly - if I put it on the charger the red light comes on (like normal) then it turns off after 5mins, if I put the other battery in the charger it charges normally for an hour or more then the red light changes to green to say it's finished.

Do I have a paper weight on my hands?

Are you sure that you are running the one battery down enough so that the camera starts using the other? Try switching their positions in the camera. I can't remember if it actually works that way or if they drain at the same time, but I seem to remember on my 10D one will drain first.
