Please ask that somewhere that people actually know about your MP3 player. These  forums are for support and development of Rockbox, not a general-purpose MP3 player support forum.

There are no OEM ipods, if someone told you that, they were scamming you.

you dont have to be an ass about it

I realize this isn't the answer you wanted, but theres no need to get angry at people for telling you.
