    A good price but if you have only the iPod new without box, accessories ect..., I think it's a refurb!

    Start the bidding at $100 and see where it goes. People love original 1st and 2nd get iPods. I know I've seen some used 5GB models sell for about that and they were a little rough. Otherwise I would just recommend watching some similar ones on eBay to see what the auctions end at.

    I'd do this too. Make sure your listing has lots of pictures and a good description. Let us know how it goes!

    Decide the minimum YOU are willing to part with it for.

    Set that as the minimum bid, no reserve. The market will decide how much it is worth. Maybe pick a "pie in the sky" (yet possible) Buy-it-now price.

    For example, if I was selling my Macintosh 128K (which I'm NOT, you can't have it even AFTER prying it from my cold dead hands,) I would put it on with a minimum bid of $250 (what I paid for it,) and a Buy-It-Now of $1000.

    Ridiculously high starting bids cut down on the early bidders; and reserves cut down on the mid-term bidders. When you cut down on bidders at all, you cut down the maximum price. (For all but the ultra-rarest of items, where it'll go for insane amounts no matter what price you put, like an Apple I.)

    and avoid selling at times when new apple products of the same sort in your case ipod 's had been released by apple , because then the market is swamped by last years ipods, all sold to get the newest ,so you 1st gen ipod would go under in the masses

    Do you have the box?

    It's always worth more with the box - even though it's the Apple White Refurb (or Repair Replacement) box...

    Even the Apple Replacement and Refurb boxes are cool...

    (I have the boxes for a Refurbished iPhone as well as a NEW Replacement iPhone - an iPhone box that holds only the iPhone without any accessories).
