They are right you can go to pawn shops and get 30 gig ipod photo's for 40.00 a lot of pawn shop's are unloading older ipods this might be a good time to check them out before ebay.

Remember though if you through ebay and the ipod you purchased doesn't sync with itunes.

Format the ipod in disk utilitys or even windows in fat 32 and do a restore in itunes this will fix any issues.

This also fixes almost all of the ipods on ebay that wont sync as well.
