I have around 20 or so. Most people get rid of them because the batteries are dead/dying. New battery kits start at around $5. If the motherboard is dead, the drive might be alive. New external cases for microdrives start at $10. Where else can I get good as new devices for under $20? Some I keep, some are gifts.
Apple must hate people like us who fix our Apple devices. iPod Touch is glued together. First ones had battery soldered on. [my iMac is much worse, so are MacBook Air]. My son gave me his iPhone with broken glass, but touch screen still works. Now WiFi is broken and battery needs to be replaced. You have to take the phone completely apart to do all the repairs and soldering. P.O.S. Glad my own phones are Nokia--rarely break, and then are very easy to fix.
