    Hi,
    I´ve bought an used iPod via eBay. After plugging in and connecting wih iTunes, I noticed that he has already registered his name "XXX´s iPod".
    The same thing in the iPod itself.
    Now my question: Can I change the name and if yes where?
    Thank you,
    ARUS

    If you do a restore via iTunes, once the restore is complete a window should pop up prompting you to name your iPod and continue setting it up.

    lol it does seem like everyones answer here on the forums tend to be "dude, just restore"

    wierd tho, the ability to change the ipods name in itunes has been around for generations (of ipods)
    i would think it be common knowledge

    Ha, I was thinking something was wrong for a while cause I was double clicking the actual part in the center that "Name: XXXXXXX" and it wasn't doing anything, then I saw the name to the left side and it worked lmao.
