Summary: A couple of years ago, Apple recalled the 1st generation Nanos due to aging batteries potentially catching fire. You can turn in your old nano and get it replaced with a new 6th gen model. You can go to the link below and enter the serial number to find out if your model is eligible for replacement. Your nano does NOT have to be working to be eligible. The models eligible have a metal back and can be 1, 2 or 4 gigs.
Excerpt: I bought an ipod because I just wanted the brand name. I went through two ipod nanos and found them to just plain suck. I've dropped it many times, and the screen messed up. But I love the iTunes over Zune program file, but other than that this ipod sucks. Mainly because it is the first generation so that might be the case.
Excerpt: The Apple - iPod Nano 4GB 1st Generation, is an incridible product! It has lasted me a long time, taking multple hard task! It is extremely tough and was perfect for me, since I work out a lot. It took a lot of extreme work outs, which included many falls and hits to the Apple - iPod Nano 4GB 1st Generation. If you are a person that needs a music player that can stand a hard life style this is the product for you! I give it a 5 out of 5!
Excerpt: i believe i've had this little nano for atleast 3 years and we are still going strong. it is the right size, not to small or two big, holds just enough music that i listen to on a daily basis and still works just as great as it did when i got it. it will be a very sad day when it dies.
Excerpt: This iPod was my first iPod and my first MP3 player ever. I loved this thing, it was so nice to listen to songs on the go without having to change discs, and to just have the access at your fingertips. Unfortunately with the size comes a data restriction, as you'll find that the lower storage capacity fills up pretty fast. But that doesn't change it from being a great device with great features.
Excerpt: My brother owns this original iPod nano and I've borrowed it several times since my Shuffle died. He bought it when it first came out and was able to get his name engraved on it for free. This thing was expensive back then! But I have to say that it has lasted for quite a while. It's well-known that the original nano was subject to easy scratches. My brother purchased the silicone cover for it but it somehow still scratched! He ended up just taking the cover off.
Excerpt: Ok i bought my ipod nano about hmm three or four years ago, and used it for about a year and a half before upgrading to the ipod touch. This ipod is okay, dont get me wrong the music sounds wonderfull. But theres not much you can do on it besides listen to music. And another thing is there are no speakers which i thought was a big bummer, But anyways You have a choice between three games i think lol, I dont really remember what they are but they were older games.
Excerpt: So the first generation ipod nano is an amazing first ipod or mp3 player. In my opion it is also a great starter ipod for a yonger person probally with in the rang or ten to thirteen year old. And I say this since most ten to thirteen year olds I know only have a couple hundred songs that they really really like.
Excerpt: I bought this iPod used for only $40 from a friend. I bought this iPod because it was an upgrade from my 1 gb iPod shuffle. I like the fact that it has a screen so that you can navigate much easier and be more organized. I also liked the convenient size and the easy to use click wheel. I found that 1 gb of memory was not enough for my collection of music and I later upgraded to a Four gigabyte iPod nano.
