    Here is my Question, i have a 3g ipod i think, the one with the first click wheel, its 20 gig. I have had it about just over a year or more i dont remember. Well It recently wont charge or have the battery even turn it on, so what should i do? try to get money off ebay for the broke one? and just buy a new one which look really great, or should i just pay the money to get mine fixed? other than the battery, only thing wrong is the scratches, all music on there is on my comp, so no worries.

    I just replaced mine and it was fairly easy to remove the casing and strip out the dead battery and now I have around 20hrs of playtime on my beloved 2G iPod; totally worth the $20.00 I spent. And, just make sure to follow the instructions and use the tools they provide—although flimsy they should do the job. Go here

    Click on the link I posted. However, a battery installed by Apple is $80. I didn't think it was hard to do it myself, just follow the included instructions and take your time.
