    Has anybody been having trouble with new iPods? I am on my 2nd replacement iPod in a about a week.

    I have been posting about it on a blog linked below, but the just of it is I have receive two bad iPods this week from the apple store:) I was wondering if anyone had an idea of the percentage of iPods that are replaced by Apple because they were defective in some way?

    A friend of mines 60gb video was defective out of the box too.

    So you have a refurbished one now? I honestly wouldn't be too happy getting a refurbished ipod for my week old new one really. Doesn't seem right. Good luck with this one though, hopefully you won't have any trouble with it.

    btw.. Applecare is great and the people at the Apple Store took care of my problems quickly.

    So.. I don't worry about having issues resolved with Apple. Great Company.
