    Its the first ive read of it. You are probably better off speaking to whomever you heard this from, and get more information from them.

    I doubt it though. And they certainly wouldn't transfer your songs anyway. You can do that yourself easily enough from your own computer at home in just a few minutes.

    I think they take them back only to re-cycle them. You don't get any money but you get to feel good about not adding to the local landfill. They do the same with your old computer too.

    About transferring songs. I don't think you'd be recycling a working iPod

    Apple Stores give you 10% off a new iPod if you turn in an old iPod (to recycle it). This is true for all iPod models except for the iPod shuffle.
