As many of you probably are, I too am an iPod collector. It's hard to explain the feeling of getting a new iPod, eventhough you know there's no need for it:rolleyes:

...my iPhone is pretty much the only thing that gets use nowadays, but I still find myself trying to find a way to get the next one :D

Here's a thread to that you can creatively show your precious collection. I for one have my collection displayed as such...

so that is really cool, i am an aspiring ipod collector. Basically I just dont have the cash yet to buy a bunch of different ones. The only one you really need to work on is the original ipod. My buddy picked one up on ebay for about sixty bucks, the click wheel physically turns, its nuts!

Man you need to get some color in your collection! :)

There are people who collect every color of the Maglite flashlights (http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1797653&postcount=23). So there probably are people who have every color of iPod mini, shuffle and nano. And if there aren't, someone should start a collection right now :)

The maglite collection is insane...haha very cool! I stick with the standard white or silver, the most original apple colors. I think adding color to my collection at this point would look a bit tacky.

Yeah the 1st generation which debuted October 23, 2001 had this innovative wheel which was replaced in 2002 with the even more innovative touch wheel.

I like that you're only collecting the white/silver models. Nice collection.

So what is in the box, is that a 1st or 2nd gen model? (I remember the physical scroll-wheel ones but I never saw the packaging they came in!)

That's a pretty sweet collection. Looks like you still need a 2G silver Nano. You should grab a refurb from Apple's website while they're still $79.

Thanks!

Its a 1st Gen model. From the box, you can tell by the font of "iPod." No other iPod had that same font.

Thanks to you too! I plan on buying the 2G iPod from the refurb store. That's my next purchase. Just haven't gotten around to purchasing it yet. Maybe tonight...:D

I've had quite a few iPods over the past years. Funny though, all I have now is an iPhone. I seem to keep selling iPods as I buy newer ones. I don't really need the money or anything, just sometimes someone wants to buy an iPod and can't afford to buy a new one or just doesn't want/need a brand new one... so I sell them my old one :)

P.S. A 1G iPod would be sweet to have though ;)

I can't say I'm a collector but I do stay up-to-date on the iPods so I've had quite a few. After getting to use a 1G iPod in 2003(?) I knew I wanted an iPod. Here's what I've had over the years:

10GB 3G (HD failed after 1 year, replaced by Apple)
10GB 3G (HD failed after 3 months, out of warranty)
60GB photo (sold to buy 5G)
60GB 5G (sold due to non-use)
4GB 1G nano (lost)
30GB 5G (current, owned 15 months)
2GB 1G nano (current, owned 3 months)
16GB touch (returned due to being too expensive for me at the time)
8GB touch (couldn't resist it's allure, got a great deal, current, owned 1 month)

I have it partially disassembled, it has been playing fine but for some strange reason the text will start to fade as I use it.:confused:
I have never seen this before so I took it apart and plan on swapping in a new battery and possibly a new lcd. I just have to get on the stick and order the parts.:)

On another note. I just received my 2GB 2G refurb silver nano today! When I get around to it I'll have to update my collection picture.

Yeah they are awesome. The nanos fit perfectly in them because they are so slim. As for the bigger iPods, it just so happens that the prong part of the stand fits perfectly in the dock connector...exactly the right width and length! They must have been secretly made for iPods:)

Eric...also post a pic of your 13 iPods. It would be nice to see!

Mat,

I am surprised you are still hanging on to the first gen iPod.
I do remember offering you a price for the iPod previously that was too low, but I finally managed to grab hold onto one of these. The thing is, I noticed that our iPod's packaging are different, care to explain why?

So many models are out there that it confuses me.
Pardon the heavy watermarking on the pictures, I have to prevent it from being stolen by scammers.

I absolutely love the 1G iPods, I wish there was a way to get a 5G inside a 1G.

I've had a few iPods, but always sold them as I've gone on.

My first was a 3G 15GB which got squashed, then I moved on to a 4G U2 iPod, and now I have a 5G 30GB and an iPhone.

Out of all of them, I think my favourite was the 3G. I liked the colour of the U2 iPod, but I never liked the back of it.

Gerald,

I don't want to burst your bubble, but yours is actually part of the second generation of iPods.

I did have that same iPod about a year ago sealed just like yours but ended up selling it then. I didn't know at first why the package was different either until a bit of research and help from my friends here on MR. You may have actually offered me something for that one back then. Dont get me wrong, it's still worth a pretty penny but isn't the ideal one for a collector (IMO). The one I have now, I've never offered up for sale. I will hang onto it for a good while. I've also had another 1G iPod one in mint condition, but with no packaging and recently sold it to springlakebob. Now I'm on the hunt for another one with no packaging so I can actually play with it!

A bit of an explanation:
When the second generation iPods came out in 2002, with the touch wheel, apple kept the 5GB scroll wheel iPod around, but put it in second generation packaging. Essentially its the same iPod, but a few things are different:

The first generation box doesn't say the storage capacity on it because there was only 1 iPod out at the time of the original, and it wasn't necessary. The same goes for the back of the physical iPod.

Also, the font is different both on the box and on the iPod itself. The first generation iPod font was a different type than the iPod's now and also yours. (sorry I don't know the name of the iPod font...) You can see by comparing my picture and yours.

One more thing, the first generation was never made for windows only for mac. The second generation of iPods came out with a choice between the two.

I hope I helped. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the info. Do you mean you have an actual SEALED first gen iPod with you right now? That is cool if you did.

One thing I am still unsure of, is that I thought that instead of being gen 1, this iPod is gen 1.1, reason being that,

when the first ipod was introduced, it was gen 1, and also mac only.
then came along another ipod, same model same looks, same physical spedifications, but was windows compatible.

then came the second gen ipods that had the electronic scroll wheel, the one that does not move. I have read up so much on it and some websites seem to differentiate the generations by the physical scroll wheel.

there might be some ambiguity in the generation naming, but the one I have right now with me is definitely the second model of ipods introduced, and may or may not be the first generation of ipods.

by the way, i hope you don't mind me asking you but could you email me at geraldino DOT 10 AT gmail DOT com, the price that your ipod (the one in the picture) sold for?

Thanks for the help :)

Yours may actually be a second generation (or 1.1 generation) Windows one - hence the different package (says "Windows" on it).

Still need to get a pic of mine up...

I have an old 3rd Gen 10Gig and a 5th Gen 60 Gig, but this one is my collectible one.

5Gig 1.1 Gen for Windows. I bought it on eBay back when the 3rd Gens were out. I thought I'd just buy an older one, but complete in box.

The couple that had this one won it in a contest. They had a Windows machine and thought they can use it, but found out you need FireWire. Back then, hardly any Windows PC's had FireWire, so it sat in the box. They decided to sell it, so they opened it up :mad: just to check it and posted it with "Buy It Now" for $125 shipped. :)

Good deal I thought. I got it, opened only the top part of the iPod's wrapper to hook it up to my iBook G3 at the time. It reformatted it for Mac and sync'ed.

Then, I thought, "you know, these might become collectible", put it back in the box, then bought a refurbished 3rd Gen 10Gig which just became available from Apple.

Everything is still unopened inside with the packaging/twist ties.

Good thing I did that... :p

NOTE: Had pics up but realized scammers may use them to post on eBay... will post after watermarking them...

Okay, here they are...

Here's a picture of my small iPod collection. Really the Touch is all I use. I used to have the original black Nano, but it died and Apple took it back :(

I wish I had the same will-power as you! With all of those beautiful new iPods out, you're still satisfied with what you have...that is awesome!


Thanks. I have a limited budget for tech toys so I was holding out for 12 or 16GB before upgrading. And since Apple didn't deliver the size I wanted (in a nano) I decided to roll my own.

I don't collect, but I repair & sell to friends (and sometimes online).

Just got a 1st gen in the mail today, has the typical scratches but the screen is fine and it works. No box, sadly, but it did come with the AC charger & a white Apple FireWire cable.

I won't tell you how cheaply I got it. ;)

I need a logic board for a color "4th gen" (photo/color) if anyone has one of those to get rid of; not for me, but a friend's co-worker.

My "collection" is small, just a 16 GB Touch and a 1 gig White Nano. Since I got the Touch, I don't use the nano at all. I've got someone intrested in it but I was an idiot when I bought it and had it engraved with my name.:( Does anyone know how to get rid of the engraving in a way that will not destroy the back all together??

Hey guys, my collection is a little different: I am more specific, taking a keener interest in the third generation models, i mean i like all ipods, but have a particular love for the middle generation. I have to say that other than the shuffle and touch, i think the current generation is pretty ugly. Getting rid of the white i thought was a bad move, while the new nanos' clickwheels are far too close to the screen and just don't feel balanced (although i still plan to get one in the new year for their nike running benefits). Saying that though, full size and middle size ipods haven't been 'balanced' since the 4th gen ipods and ipod minis (both 1st and 2nd gen).

Anyway, my collection is:

3x 20gig 3G ipods
1x 20gig 4G ipod colour
1x 512meg 1G Shuffle
1x 1gig 2G Shuffle
1x 4gig 1G mini

As I said, a nano should be joining those fairly soon!

Hehe. This thread inspired me to dig out my old 2G 20GB iPod and see if it worked.

Hooked up the Firewire cable (you kids today with yer fancy-schmancy 'dock' connectors!) - and yes, the FW port cover's still attached! It works fine still! Very strange to see a time-capsule of my music collection from 2005! I know some people end up getting lots of iPods through faults, repairs and replacements, but since getting my 2G iPod in 6 years ago, I'm still only on my 2nd (an iPod Colour with Clickwheel). That tells me it's time for an upgrade - 2G from 2002-2005 (3yrs), iPod Colour from 2005-2008 (also 3yrs!).

Here's my collection. The picture isn't entirely complete as I have the box for the 3rd Gen, a 4th generation HP + Apple iPod as well as an original iPod shuffle packed away in storage. I'm waiting on an Apple 4th gen as well.

I'm now at;

80gb 5.5G black (love the look)
1gb 2G Shuffle silver

That's it :p I miss my Mini and my girlfriends got my 15gb 3G iPod. Also used my mums 16gb iPod Touch whilst I was recovering from an arm injurt, them things are fantastic! Hoping for a 32gb iPhone next.

Managed to get my whole family in on the act. My sister has a 1G black Nano, 4gb. Pops has a silver 2G 4gb Nano. Mother has a 16gb iPod Touch and my bro has an 80gb 5.5G Black iPod like me.

I currently have the following:


16 GB iPod Touch


Silver 1GB 2nd-gen shuffle


White 512MB 1st-gen shuffle


Pink 4GB 1st-gen mini (the wife's - practically brand new - she never really ever used it)


30GB 3rd-gen iPod (still works great - battery is slipping a bit, but still decent considering its age)


I also owned:

20GB 2nd-gen iPod (had for about 9 months when the headphone jack started shorting out...was able to trade in for the 3rd-gen listed above)


What I'm buying next (as soon as it comes out):

3G iPhone (which will hopefully also be 32GB)


I don't currently have a picture of all of them together...I'll try to post it here soon.

In addition to some other posters in this thread, I am a big fan of the 3rd-gen iPod and its touch controls. I never really fully replaced it until the Touch came out.

Not entirely sure what happened to my original picture. My webhost was having some problems so maybe they restored to a backup or something, but alas a new picture as arrived.

The only iPod that is missing is the first generation shuffle. It's missing only because I lent it to my sister and don't really feel the need to have it back. The box is present though. All of these iPods are soon going to be protected with the invisible shield as I have one for every single generation.

All are functional and in reasonable to new condition. I even threw a iPod + HP in there to be complete.

The List:
1G - 5GB
2G - 10GB
3G - 15GB upgraded to 30GB (My First iPod, and dear to my heart)
4G - 20GB
4GHP - 40GB
5G - 30GB
5.5G - 30GB

I currently use the 2nd gen iPod Touch (in the black/red case) and the blue shuffle.

I gave the first gen iPod Touch (in the see-through red) to my dad and the first gen nano to my mom.

Also have the two pair of headphones I use at the top.

1 4G iPod Classic 20GB (Came free with iBook)

1 5G iPod Classic 60GB (Sold, waiting for 6G iPod)

1 1G iPod Shuffle 512mb (After my first iPod broke, bought it as a temporary replacement)

1 1G iPod Touch 16GB

Thinking about getting the Nano now for working out to replace my outdated Shuffle...

Currently, the Touch is my main player, and I use the Shuffle at the gym. That's all I have left.

A few updates to the previous collection: another iPod shuffle 512mb and an iPhone 3G.

However, the mini died completely following my dissection, although the metal shell remains intact. The shuffle on the right is my old one that snapped in half at the USB connector, hence making it unable to charge, but apart from a few hairline cracks, its still mostly ok, it even still plays music. The iPod touch is borrowed from a friend. The 2G shuffle now belongs to my mum, the photo is used as backup, and the new 1G shuffle is used when I don't want to take my iPhone.

On a slightly disgusting note, I've included a picture comparing the used and unused lanyard cords on the shuffles. I can't believe how yellow it went, and I promise I do shower everyday, *honest*.

Very impressive collections! My iPods number only 3 (or 5 if you count the ones I bought for my wife), but as I search for the perfect pocket media player my total collection is now at 15 (I think).

What you need to add is a photo of the headphones and charging cables you got with all those iPods. ;) I'm personally curious to know if any of the early earbuds still work.

Well done, regardless!

OK...just out of curiosity...if I were to somehow locate the original, first-ever iPod with FireWire 400, still sealed in the box, could I connect it to my iMac running OS X 10.5.5 and actually load music on it? I'm not sure about iTunes since that didn't come out until later if I do recall correctly. :apple:

There's no reason why it shouldn't work.

iTunes was first released in early 2001, months before the first iPod; it needs at least iTunes 2.0.

I can confirm that first gens still work properly. I occasionally take mine out and use it for the fun of it. The mechanical scroll wheel is the best. Personally though if you had one still sealed in the box I'd leave it there, those things fetch a serious premium. You'd be better off getting a gently used one eBay. That's where mine came from. I polished it up and put an InvisibleSHIELD on it.

I personally am not an iPod collector, I only upgrade to a new one when I need to or when Apple convinces me that it is worth it.

I have-

1 iPhone 3G 16 GB
1 iPhone 8 GB
1 iPod Shuffle Silver 3rd Gen

I used to have-

1 iPod 20 GB White (gave to friend in Colorado)
1 iPod Classic 160 GB, HD died 1 month after I got it. Took it to Apple, paid them the difference ($50.00) got my first iPhone 8 GB. :D

I'm still using my 1G 5GB iPod . . the only one I've ever owned. I remember when I bought it that it was "Apple only" and pre-iTunes for Windows so I bought software that would sync it on a PC, along with the original iTrip FM modulator.

I've got a 20GB 2nd Gen (First Touch Wheel) in very good condition that I just can't get myself to throw out. The unit powers on but battery life seems awfully short. FYI, It's laser engraved with my name and email.

Any aspiring collectors want it? You pay for shipping and its yours. I think I even have the box somewhere.

Email me if you're interested. :)

I have just recently started my collection, but have a few questions about what you do with yours.

How often do you charge (and deplete?) the battery on them?

When you purchase them, do you only go for the complete box units, or have you ever bought an item that is just the iPod itself?

How do you stop yourself from wanting to buy them ALL?

siliconcowboy
Jun 27, 2009, 07:39 AM
In an ideal world I'd charge the battery once a month and let them run occasionally... in actuality I probably do it every 2-3.

I am pretty particular and am only interested if the item has it's complete box. This unfortunately raises the prices of collecting quite a bit. Especially for the older ones =)

I do a pretty poor job of not buying them all... but what I do do a pretty decent job of is staying a generation behind. So in September when they release new iPods I'll be looking on the Apple discounts page at the old generation models. You have to watch though, this backfires sometimes. Especially with the Nano's they seem to be pretty good about making sure they don't have many of them left by the time they release new ones.

I haven't posted a picture for a while, I'll try to do that this weekend (after which I'll charge them since you reminded me of it :))

The shadow on the left of the image is from my mac mini, and the silver mini at the bottom isn't scraped, it's just the image.

Anybody have any hints or tips on preserving the boxes?

I just bought a 1st generation iPod Nano in GREAT shape, but the box has a few dings on it and is a little bent on the edge.

I want to flatten this out and get it looking as new as possible, but I don't want to damage it in the process.

Any advice on this type of thing?

Usually owned only one or to at the same time:

- 1G iPod Mini 4GB (sold it to a friend)
- white iPod Video 30GB (drowned in the bathtub)
- black iPod Video 30GB (dog of my neighbors tried to eat it)
- iPod Classic 80GB (sold)
- 3G iPod shuffle (sold)
- 1G iPod Touch 8GB (gave it to a friend)
- iPhone 2G (gave it to a friend)
- 4G iPod Nano 8GB (sold)
- iPhone 3G 8GB
- iPod Classic 120GB

I replaced the iPod Nano with a new iPod Classic, as I was tiered of always choosing what playlists to take with me. (I use my iPhone 3G mostly for Podcasts. That Navigon App is taking up a lot of space. :eek:)

I just got my hands on a 1st generation iPod Nano and it is still in the shrink wrap.

Should I keep it wrapped up, or should I take it out and display the iPod itself.

Personally, I like the latter option, but is this just like old school action figures and it will ruin resale value?

I just recently found my old iPod 1g mini and I fell in love all over again! This is the only one I have ever kept! I usually sell them off when I get a new one!

I had the 1g when it came out, then got the 3g, and bought the mini. Decided to buy the 30gb video and put the mini in a drawer... Bought the 160 gig classic and ended up losing/letting it get stolen and moved onto the touch...

The touch has now gone into the drawer and the Mini is my primary music player!! :D

The first gen ipod was only available in 5gb and the 2nd gen was never available in 5gb?

Incorrect.

The First generation ipod consisted of the 5GB scrollwheel, launched in october 2001. In march 2002, a 10GB version was added, also a 1st generation ipod.

In june 2002, the 2nd generation was launched, consisting of a 10GB & a 20GB touchwheel version. In addition, the 5GB scrollwheel version was relaunched, retaining the scrollwheel. All 5GB scrollwheel ipods, made after june 2002, are 2nd generation ipods:-)

You can verify this either by checking your ipods serialnumber. Third digit indicates year, third & fourth digit indicates week of production. Most ipod 5GB scrollwheel found on ebay are actually 2nd generation models!

Check this link (http://www.chipmunk.nl/klantenservice/applemodel.html) if you want to know which version you have.

2G iPod Touch 8GB - Sealed

Yeah... I know I have a little bit of a problem. All of the iPods still work and I use a few depending upon my mood. The 1st gen touch is by far my primary player, I suspect I will use it until the battery fails to hold a good charge or it gets a worthwhile upgrade. Other than that I use the 1G iPod for a stroll down memory lane occasionally, the 1G Nano or the 2G shuffle.

Sorry the picture is a little fuzzy, the lighting in my apartment is atrocious and I didn't feel like getting my LED lamp out of my car.

I don't collect iPods- I've never actually had one as I used a CD walkman, then my iPhone- but I've wanted one of the gold ones since they came out..it was a very long time ago, they had a matte gold coloured model. I think it was a mini.
