    so I got an email from Apple because I bought a 1st gen nano years ago.. apparently they're sending free replacements for them because of some battery safety issue... don't even use it anymore.. gonna get the new one and sell it..lol

    mines boxed up ready to go out.

    BTW, you dont have to use any special software to get to the music files. just navigate to the ipod, and under folder options in explorer, select "show hidden files and folders", you will see a folder called iPod control or something, and in there will be a folder with all the music in it. copy, paste, done.

    nope, my ex bought me a refurb like 4-5 years ago for my birthday. you did your replacement fairly early right? like as soon as you found out about it? from what the paper in the box said, they sent people new ones because they ran out of refurbs to send out. should have waited lol.

    I've got a 1st gen nano that I...er...'inherited' from one of my ex's back in 2006...still use it, it's got the songs that I listen to when I race on it...matter of fact, it's been on me at LEAST 5 or 6 times that I've crashed...

    wonder if I should check into sending it in...
