iPod Expert Comments:

The iPod first generation was Apple's first iPod. Among the iPod's innovations were its small size, achieved using a 1.8" hard drive, whereas its competitors were using 2.5" hard drives at the time, and its easy-to-use navigation, which was controlled using a mechanical scroll wheel, a center select button, and 4 auxiliary buttons around the wheel.

    Best iPod ever! :D

  2. Ben Powell on April 21st, 2008 at 12:32 am says:

    Ended up with one of these when purchasing a second hand iBook off Ebay. 10 GB model came free with the buy it now which was a pleasant surprise.

    Although a little on the chunky side it was nothing compared to other players i had used in the past (riva players spring to mind!).

    Eventually it died a death after it would no longer charge from the firewire port on any computer i tried it on. Swapped out the battery to no avail.

    Brilliant player and definitely ahead of its time.

    I don’t have one, but I want one to put iPodLinux on, since my First generation nano can’t hald the entire OS unless it erases the Flash memory completly.

  6. Steve on August 12th, 2008 at 3:05 pm says:

    I have the 10Gb model and believe it or not it still works well. Just today, however, I decided to spring for a refurbished MA146LL/A 30Gb video model, but I will probably keep my 10Gb forever. I’ve traveled with it all over the world.

    Who Invented this product?

  9. Mitch on September 19th, 2008 at 3:08 pm says:

    answer to Judith H’s question: Stevie Jobs, the CEO of Apple designed and therefore invented the first iPod in 2001 and has been making the designs ever since.

  10. Mitch2 on September 27th, 2008 at 1:27 am says:

    Sorry, Stevie did not do that. If I remember correctly, he had just gotten back to Apple just before the release of the original iPod. He was not there through the product development phase, and could not have invented it.

  11. Leif Ree-Pedersen on October 7th, 2008 at 4:01 pm says:

    No, Mitch2. Steve Jobs came back to Apple in 1997 and surely had a LOT to do with the idea and development of the iPod. But of course he did not single-handedly invent or design the player. As to the actual design of the gadget, Apples brilliant chief designer, Jonathan Ive, is probably the man mostly to applaud.

  18. heathmun on January 8th, 2009 at 9:14 pm says:

    I still have mine!!!

    I must have the one in a million original iPod that still works great on it’s original battery… I still get 8-10hrs of playtime on the battery :)

    It’s fairly worn, the screen lens is hazy from all the inadvertent abrasion over the years and the headphone jack is cracked – it all still works fine though… listening to it right now.

    If iPodHistory.com wants it for their museum, let me know!

    I still have my 10gb ipod, running on original battery. Battery time not so good these days, but the player works great. The size doesn’t bother me in the least.

    This ipod is ok, I have the chromanic, I kinda like the chromanic more but the ipod first generation is pretty cool too! =]

  28. Bridget on April 21st, 2009 at 12:38 am says:

    This was pretty cool for 8 years ago, but now, it’s junk. Well, it’s still useful, but so much more innovation has been added and iPods are way better now!

  29. Heathmun on April 21st, 2009 at 12:26 pm says:

    My original iPod mentioned above has now been retired. I recently purchased an iPhone 3G (16gig) and absolutely love it. It’s certainly amazing how far this tech has evolved in the past 7-8 years.

  30. Delia from Detroit on April 21st, 2009 at 7:12 pm says:

    It was like a plague of frogs and the death of all firstborns when the iPod entered the world. A strong Apple is a scary Apple and one to beware. Do not be seduced by the gray and white earbuds, America. From the Biggest Apple Hater in the State of Michigan.

  31. Pete on April 21st, 2009 at 7:20 pm says:

    @Pete

    You can’t even spell “Detroit.” I feel sorry for you if you own an iPod. There are dozens of other media players out there that provide an able alternative to the Apple hype.

  33. Pete on April 21st, 2009 at 7:46 pm says:

    lol late evening typo. There are plenty of generic mp3 players out there – this just happens to be the history of the iPod site.

    Is anyone interested in selling one of these for $20-50?

    I am trying to form a collection of all older iPods and am having a devil of a time finding one of these…

    I am willing to take one with failed hard drive or battery, since those I can repair…

    That’s a fun discussion. I have done my best in the last 8 years to avoid iPods. I thought they were overrated and most of the times not as good as other equivalent players. I still do. But my boss gave me her iPod classic 3rd gen because ‘it no longer works dear’ – happens I just had to open the thing to replace the battery. I love it and for all its weaknesses I think there is no mp3 player on the market that looks as good as any iPod classic. I am after the above 1st gen. one because i think it’s the best looking of all – wish me good luck!

    i want a ipod now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Heathmun on October 2nd, 2009 at 4:08 am says:

    Well it wasn’t the first MP3 player on the market and it certainly was pretty expensive. What the iPod offered was a far superior interface. The operating system on it and the controls were very intuitive and unmatched. Yes, there was a lot of marketing and media hype but without the juice to back it up it would have just been another Zune :)

    This all combined to soak up tremendous market share and today the iPod still owns the greatest share by far. Sony, once so far ahead in the portable music realm can’t even muster any competition.

    Apple often isn’t the absolute first to do things but often times they tend to do it the best.

    Ok to the people who are bashing this Ipod. It may not be cool and up to date but in 2001 it was the best of its time, and without its release there wouldn’t be the new Ipods they have now. I have personally never seen one in person but I would have definately not minded one in 2001 when they were “tiny”.

    2. Tony Fadell they both created the I Pod.
    3. Tony Fedell Created the I Pod (Apple.)

    why did the creator create the iPod?
    1. Steve Jobs “molded the device’s shape, feel, and design”, no doubt with the assistance of Tony Fadell, the director of Apple’s Industrial Design Group.
    2. The I Pod is designed for anyone interested in carrying the equivalent of hundreds of CDs worth of music, and numerous other files, in a small, easy-to-use design that fits in one’s pocket.

    hello i luv my iphone and ipod touch

  60. Heathmun on January 22nd, 2010 at 3:51 pm says:

    Nikki, what are you smokin’? :)

    Fadell was Sr. VP of the iPod Division not head of the I.D. Group. He was very instrumental in the technological development of the iPod first as an independent contractor and later as head of the division.

    Jonathan Ive is most credited with the design of the device (Sr. VP of the Industrial Design Group.

    Jonathan Ive is a very successful designer. Being in the right environment with the right resources can really make a difference in a designer’s output. I don’t know what he was thinking when they pushed that round mouse on us though… complete disregard for ergonomics, usability, product/user feedback, etc. – you name it, that item failed on nearly every aspect of design. That’s for another discussion though :)

    Found this awesome site while looking around to see if the batteries are still available for the first gen; mine’s getting sluggish. Hey Jonathan, I have a 5GB one and those retailed for $399, since you asked. I’ve used it nearly every day since I got it in December of 2001 and it still works fine. It’s on its second battery right now, and I’ve never even filled all 5GB of space. I think it’s lighter than 8.9 ounces but I can’t argue that since I don’t have a tiny scale. :o ) Best iPod ever.

  77. Michael on March 18th, 2010 at 2:16 pm says:

    I’ve just bought a First Generation, 5GB. Battery refurbished, well looked after. It’s a bit more chunky than current iPods but by no means heavy or awkward. The wheel is a lot nicer than current models since it tends to glide rather than drag. In terms of the looks, up close it’s a 10/10 on the design front. I don’t quite get the sentiments that it looks like “crap”, it’s classic for sure but at the same time iconic and a real achievement of design. Even today it still turns heads and impresses just about everyone that looks at it.

    I love my iPhone for sure, and it’s a lot more modern, but for just music (which this first iPod was all about) there’s nothing quite like it.

    Albeit it’s old (2001) and had next to no capacity, I still love this one.
    I have a near-mint 2nd generation 10 GB myself, and I still use it to date. The battery only lasts about 4 hours, but, oh, well.

    The main inventors you should know about are Tony Fadell and Jonathan Ive. They do most of the designing with a bit of help from Steve Jobs. He is mostly the “talk” of the company. However, this first iPod was literally created from the company PortalPlayer. That’s the main thing you should know, all other info can be found at this great site: http://lowendmac.com/orchard/05/origin-of-the-ipod.html#0

  106. Paul on March 19th, 2011 at 8:33 am says:

    Can’t believe the ill-informed hostility here to this groundbreaking product. Of course it looks a little clunky from this vantage point but it was truly revolutionary – as most Apple products are. It took a lot of “standing on the shoulders of giants” for everyone else to catch Apple up, as it usually does.

    This player was hugely ahead of its time and influenced everything else which followed.

    I’ve still got a 5th Gen which is as good as the day I bought it.

    Just bought a 1st gen iPod on eBay in excellent condition. Now I can hold a piece of Apple history in my hands. Love it!

    [...] at the time, I thought it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen. (Today, it looks like a big brick of lucite, but that’s another story.) I’ve updated my music player twice since then, and [...]

    I got my iPod from my father. Its the 1st generation. Its so sad that Steve Jobs died.

    With death of Steve Jobs on October 5th, 2011 many people suppose Apple to change in future and this very first “Steve-Jobs-iPod” seems to have a remarkable renaissance. Prices on ebay for 10 years old used iPods 1st gen are 450 € (617 US$) at the time I write this!

    I recentaly bought a 1st gen 5 gb at a garage sale for $1.50!!!! I also bought a seccond gen iPod 10 gb for $1.50 at the same garage sale too!! The only problem was that they didn’t come with the cords… A few months later, I bought an original ipod FireWire cable at a thrift store for $1!!! The 1st gen works flawlessly, the battery lasts and it came pre loaded with 914 songs!! The 2nd works well, but sound will only come out of the speakers when you hold it a certain way. I just thought I’d share this because I love my iPods!! I also collect apple products.

  130. jason moss on January 17th, 2012 at 5:22 pm says:

  131. Hannah Gildemeister on February 14th, 2012 at 11:20 pm says:

    i agree with Alaa Axcha because i am doing research on Steve Jobs and how he invented the 1st generation iPod and what inspired him to make it! so i do think that they should put that kinds of stuff on these web pages!

  132. amanda blanch on March 20th, 2012 at 3:27 pm says:

    i have just found my first i pod had it since 2001 and i have just charged it and it works, wow can’t believe it as it hasn’t been used since 2004 and my mac doesn’t even have firewall to charge it but borrowed an older mac…….amazing it still works.

  133. M. Shah on March 23rd, 2012 at 3:38 am says:

    Does anybody know where I could buy one today? I need a brand new, sealed piece.

  135. Anonymous Jasmine on April 18th, 2012 at 12:07 am says:

    love dis ipod. btw (some of) the hardware engineers were Tony Fadell and Michael Dhuey, and (one of) the the design engineers was Jonathan Ive. obviously Steve Jobs led the team that created it.
