    I have recently obtained a broken Ipod mini as part of a trade for some bike parts. I now want to sell this. I was thinking about putting it on ebay but figured I would post here first.
    It is a blue ipod mini
    Comes with the charger, firewire cable, usb cable, and headphones (however the headphones are pretty busted up, but audio can still be heard).

    The ipod itself powers on, but does not stay on for very long due to low battery power. It has approximately 350 songs on it. It also has the name of the owner engraved in the back.

    If anyone is interested or has any questions..please let me know.

    The songs will have to be erased before offering it for sale.

    Please use the Marketplace for posting forsale and feelers.

    Because, umm, unless you are the songwriter and recording artist, the songs are copyright by somebody else, and you do not have the right to give or sell a copy of them to someone else. Doesn't matter if the previous owner of the iPod violated copyright by including them to you when you bought it.

    If you want to sell it here, MattyMac, erase the songs and start a thread in the Marketplace forum. You'll see the licensing issue mentioned when you review the Marketplace Rules.
