Does the back chrome surface of your iPod have a bunch of very fine scratches on it above and below the Apple logo? Mine had these fine scratches on it when I got it. The unit was new and came in a sealed box. It's just a cosmetic thing and of course has no effect on usability. Anyway, I was just wondering what other people have observed on theirs.<br><br>
I got one of the original iPods, so it's been a while, but I don't recall any scratches whatsoever - because I remember being extremely pissed off when I noticed the first one!<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!

No scratches on mine at all when I got it, but it now has a hell of a lot so a few to start with won't really matter...<br><br>"I'd hate to die twice. It's so boring."<br>- Richard P Feynman, Last Words<br>

I've had two. I plugged the first one into the firewire port of my CDRW drive and it fried it (how was I supposed to know ), luckily Apple replaced it.<br><br>Anyway, neither one had any scratches, but all you have to do is look at it and you can watch the scratches appear, I think. When I got the second one I immediately went from the box to the soft suede leather carrying case without ever even touching it to anything else. After a couple weeks I took it out to look at it and, sure enough... scratches.<br><br>

I heard that there is some compound you can find at any hardware store that will smooth out the scratches. I can't remember the name 100%, I think it might be Brasso?<br><br>Visit a hardware store for details before using Brasso...<br><br><br><br>---<br><br>S3V3N<br>Washington, DC USA
jesus, I'd never think to put brasso on my iPod... that [censored]'ll eat up the finish in a heart beat in the wrong hands... maybe a finer polish than brasso but not brasso, at least not in inexperienced hands...<br><br><br><br>"In the old days, you'd finish a day's work and announce, 'I'm done.'
