Bummer. Bought it around 2008 and ended up leaving it in a drawer for years once phones could hold more music.
Recently bought a very cool Philips clock radio iPod/iPhone dock and restored and sync-ed the iPod. It worked for a week or two then went blank.
Thinking of buying an old iPhone (3 or 4) with 16GB. Seems it will be far less than replacing the iPod.
