I'm the proud owner of a bunch of Ipod clones (very, very close in appearance) that actually do format as 8GB and seem to work 'ok'. I'm wondering what they really are and if there's a market for them at all?
Pictures: green is clone, silver is genuine
They have actual ipod markings on them and came in real cases - the sticker colors don't match though and the cases are obviously recycled.
Only noticeable difference is the tiny screw on back, small 'ipod' sticker on front, click wheel does not fully function (no spin) and it has different software, FM radio and voice recorder. Also it seems as if it only plays AMV video format but does play mp3s, woohoo.
