This is REALLY weird, but in the summer, using my birthday money, I bought a fake iPod nano. I don't know how I didn't know, but here's a picture of it.




So, I was really excited, because I could get them at only $20 apiece (I got 4). But, eventually, they all ended up breaking, except one (no surprise). One's button broke, one is stuck on the loading screen, one is completely dead and I can do nothing to fix it. So I've been trying to get these to work for, say, 3 months. Now I finally have got the nerve to take one apart. I chose the black one, which was the completely dead. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures, so now I ended up with this.




When I look really closely, one of the black boxes (no technical expertise here) says:

Samsung 704
K9G4G08U0A
PCB0

and on the smaller one, it says:

ATJ2091N - large letters
g2165fb 53e - small letters, the "g" may be a 6, it was so small I couldn't tell


Ok, my picture files are "too large", so I don't know how to upload them. But it's completely broken, so if I can take out the memory then please tell me how.

Maybe it's me, but did you really think a real Nano was only $20? Guess I cant figure out how you thought you were getting a deal.
Did the package say Apple or SnApple?

Where'd you get them? Like the post above me states, could they possibly be real at $20?

Get one from Apple next time. Much more worth it.

Mac, from the post, I am guessing he thought they were real until they broke at which time they became real fake.

Still, if I can get me some $20 Nanos, I'm all over it.... :p

even if they were real, I would have to question the means of how the person got it.
it might just be me but I don't like buying stolen goods.
