    Just look on eBay or Craigslist and see what they are going for.

    Should have sold right when they were discontinued last year. People were snapping them up then.

    Try Amazon for lower fees, less saturation, and fewer flakes. $200 for very good condition.

    It looks like the 200 dollar one has been there a while :(

    Does Amazon charge a fee for selling? I can't even tell if Amazon ones have been ther for a while or not. Maybe eBay is best?

    Of course they charge for selling. eBay and Craigslist is your best bet.

    I have a 120GB version of the second to the last generation of iPod Classics Apple made. Didn't want to part with it because my car stereo in my Jeep integrates well with it, and it's nice to just leave it in the center console as my music collection for it.

    But lately, I started having problems where intermittently, the stereo doesn't recognize it's there. The last time I took it out and hooked it to my Mac to sync it up, it copied over 200 or so songs that weren't yet on it and stopped syncing with an iTunes error (13013 I think?). I finally got it to sync successfully on about the 5th. try after unhooking and reconnecting it to the Mac, but pretty sure the drive in it must be starting to fail.

    That's the big problem with all of these classics at this point. They're all reaching the age where the internal drives don't have a lot of life left in them. The Classics I see selling for $250+ still are all refurbished with new high-capacity batteries and modified to use SD flash card storage inside.

    You can actually still get a fair amount on eBay for these.

    I was actually kind of interested in this subject after finding my old 160gb classic over the weekend when cleaning out my office. I took a quick look at ebay this morning and saw one particular listing end at $167. It was in good condition, but had the usual wear and tear.

    Craigslist is great if you want to avoid any selling fees. The drawback is that, for the safest experience, you're limited to selling in person locally. But as long as you meet at a neutral public location it's a great way to sell things. Of course you can always sell to other markets, but you lose out on some of the seller protections that sites like ebay and amazon afford.

    I was scooping them up when they were discontinued for about $219 at Walmart and selling NIB items with receipt for about $400-$450 usually. That frenzy seems to have stopped.

    The used ones are now $130-$200 depending on condition and how complete they are (box, cables, phones, etc.) Honestly, selling at 20% under that on a local sale is worth it by the time you pay 9%+ EBay fees, 4%-5% Paypal fees, and then deal with what I would call a heavily biased towards seller return policy.
