i purchased mine the second day they came out and after a week i accidentally droped it and have alittle crack on the screen it has worked flawlessly ever since. i finally found an online source that has replacement screens. the problem is they go for $60 while i can afford that but i think i should just keep using as i do. my question would you guys fix it? or just keep using it?

here is the link to the thread that has a pic of my ipod.

If the screen still works good then why not still use it? Maybe buy a skin/gel cover to cover it up? I think a nice Gel Case would do the job.

Edit*
Here a few:
A Hardcase one (http://cgi.ebay.com/Clear-Hard-Case-Accessory-New-iPod-Nano-6th-Gen-6G-/140471215689?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item20b4bca649#ht_1601wt_1080), a black silicone (http://cgi.ebay.com/Black-Silicone-Case-Cover-Apple-iPod-Nano-6-6th-Gen-/280601262209?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item4155237881#ht_1712wt_1080), even this one (http://cgi.ebay.com/Orange-Hard-Skin-Case-Cover-iPod-Nano-6th-Gen-6G-6-/140480215895?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item20b545fb57#ht_2458wt_1080) is nice. They are inexpensive and could possibly prevent another mishap like this.

No problem, I'm sure if you search around a bit you could find a wider variety.

fix it yourself. i did that with an second gen ipod touch. Cost me only 12 bucks to get the screen shipped to me and an hour to replace it (there are tons of youtube videos showing you how to do it).
