    Lol, you don't 'refurbish' your iPod, you buy refurbished models. Meaning, they are old insides with a new casing. But you can't give Apple your old iPod and they will replace the outside casing.

    No.. Unless you somehow get a brand new casing and replace it yourself. But Apple will not do it for you.

    Okay thank you for that. I'll leave this topic up for a while to see if anybody else has any suggestions.

    EDIT

    Does anyone know how to REMOVE THE SCRATCHES from the back of the iPod?

    Try this. I did it for my iPod. Obviously it doesn't have that original chrome shinyness, but it's pretty damn nice and unique cause no one else will have it.

    Edit: Here's a picture of what it looks like after.

    Awesome thanks for that, I'll give that a try.

    Has anyone heard of the banana trick?
