I can help!

Meguiar's Plastx Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish. Use that and a micro cloth. That's for the front of the iPod. It's around $5 for 10oz bottle. For the back use Brasso which is $4. Also get a case!

do you get good results with it, or can you still see the scratches - just to a lesser degree?

I got great results. All scratches were gone. I did lots of buffing though. Of course my scratches weren't that bad

The only way
by Glorybox3737 / January 27, 2006 12:29 AM PST

The only way he wasted his money is if he didn't use the iPod. Since it's scratched he's obvisouly using it. Just because a player doesn't have fm radio and recording doesn't make it a bad chioce. It just means that not everyone in the world wants that on thier players. Stop being an Apple basher get your Creative shut up and enjoy it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
