Selling on an iPod - do I need to securely erase?

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

 

Quick question, I'm thinking of selling my silver 160gb iPod classic in prep for buying the forthcoming 3g iPhone and was wondering if a 'restore' will be enough to delete my songs, pics, contacts etc or do I need to securely erase it before selling it on?

 

If so, is there an easy utility or command line thingy I can use for OSX to securely delete my iPod before I sell it?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Don't know that it is necessary but it's very easy to do in Disk Utility.

 

Enable DIsk Use and then go to Disk Utility. You can secure erase and when it's done it will prompt for a Restore.

I know you shouldn't really do it but you could charge a little bit more money for it if you left some of the songs on! LoL!
