    My screen busted when I dropped it the other day. Worst part: can't find my receipt.

    What's my best course of action? Is it easy to install a new screen by myself?

    Its not easy but if you take the time to prepare and research to make sure you know what you are doing it's 'do-able'. Whether you want to do this all depends on the trade off between the cost of sending it off for repair and the cost of getting a new screen sent to you and you taking the risk of fitting it yourself.

    Yeah if you look on ebay there should be some stuff available to self repair, but its quite dangerous as studangerous has said. Try 3rd party repair services search on google

    WTF ^^

    See if you can buy a broken iPod on ebay and take the screen out of it.

    I'll use it in my car. My Pioneer will read the music. I don't need the screen.

    I don't think you must have receipt for use the warranty, you have the serial number, they can pull the receipt from their computers by using it. (Not 100% sure, but you should check it)
