    I'm selling my 30GB iPod video to one of my friends for $60 (Pretty good I think, considering they are like 5 years old) because he just wants an iPod that can fit his whole library because his iPhone can't. So I was wondering what I need to do first to make sure it's all cleared off and ready for him to use...If I'm correct, I think I just have to hook it up to my library and hit restore to factory setting and that will clear all my music and stuff, but will that make it come up in his library as a brand new iPod that he can set up himself? And also, do I need to like deauthorize it or anything?

    Any help is much appreciated, Thanks.

    As you said, just restore it in iTunes. When your friend plugs it in it will show as a new iPod.

    iPods don't have to be authorized, only computers. No de-authorization is necessary.
