    I recently noticed my iPod has a LOT of scratches (Of course).
    But I was wondering, is it a good idea to sandpaper the back of my iPod?

    I don't really think any sandpaper is fine enough to buff them away rather than just give it more scratches.

    Not true...........I wouldnt use sandpaper....use a scotchbrite pad....it actually just takes oof layers of the chrome...so the more you rub off the less visible the scratches are/

    Thank you for your replies, I'm going to try to use Scotchbrite first, then I'll use sandpaper if it doesnt work.

    If your going for a brushed look...........I would say no, mostly because at first you think it is cool, but after a while..........it isnt. I tried it on the back of my 2g a long time ago and i liked it at first, but then it sucked.

    Sand paper comes in different levels or roughness. You can't generalise all sand paper's from what you used.

    I have heard of people doing this, and if done right (Only scratching in one direction - horizontal or vertical) it looks pretty good.
    Alternatively you can buy a cheap case to cover the back if you don't want to see the scratches.

    Hmmm.... I don't like how you see the brush lines; it would be cooler if it was matte looking(like the iPad or 2G iPhone.
