I bought a used iPod off ebay, off course I was expecting sracthes but when it arrived it was a little worse than I expected. After searching around I've seen many iPod users have had success with a product called Brasso. It's a mild metal polisher that can be had for about $3 at your local hardware store. I had great success with it. I was unable to remove the micro scratches because all I had was used polishing cloths which were adding micro scratches as fast as they removed them. With a brand new lint free polishing cloth I have no doubt the screen would look like new. So if you've treated your iPod badly, give it a try. You can get a like new screen and then put in in a case and keep it that way!
