What a find!

I'd doubt youll be able to get it to play anything, it looks pretty warped and it's very likely the mainboard is in pieces... It'll still be cool to take apart though!

Wow, that is sad!

Are the ports pluggable?

I dont know I have heard of the first nano still playing after getting ran over by a car.

Yeah, i had to take the plastic cover around the dock and headphones port off but i was able to plug a charger in the iPod and it did not do anything. But I am going to mess with it for a little while.

Update: i plugged the iPod into my iMac (Not a very smart move) it made a funny noise and will not mount or anything its like nothings connected so i think its dead it stinks too this thing is not old at all I ran the serial and it said it was purchased about 2 weeks ago.

Wow .... this is weird. Would be funny to know the story behind this little 2GB fellow. Well, at least try to open it to see what's wrong.
If you can, post some pics.:p

In a weird way, i think it looks quite cool like that. (Not quite enough for me to want the same for my 8GB nano).

I think it must of been run over multiple times (possibly on purpose by a pro-Zune cult ;)), because I don't think that being run over by a car once could of caused that to happen, because the 1st Generation nano could easily survive being run over, with nothing more than a few scratches (shown in this video) (http://www.stuff.tv).
