    Just wondering whats the best way of going with this. i've had my iPod for a little over a week now and it has a couple of scratches. it even has a blemish that looks a little bit like a scratch but it looks more like an oil stain and i was wondering how i could get rid of that too. a website i found said rubbing compound was the best way to get rid of scratches. what do you guys think?

    wait on the front?

    they say there are ways, but i do not think any of them really work.

    actually, i meant the chrome back. i say a video and someone used disc cleaner but i couldnt see the scratches in that vid to begin with.... might that work?

    oh, and the front is practically scratch proof, lol

    ya i was gonna say lol
    even if you did manage to get the front scratched, i think the front is hard to get rid of.

    so is the back. i honestly have no clue as to how you would remove scratches.
    as far as I know, once a scratch is there, it is there for life.

    toothpaste is rather abrasive, i heard it scratches the back even more.

    might try the disc cleaner and rubbing compound solutions. hopefully one of them work. but i dont actually have either of those two yet xD
