I purchased an iPod for 300 baht, in the market (Talat) in Pracha Songkro, Din Daeng. The vendor warned me that it did not work (“Mai Dai”), and, when pressed further, he stated that there was a problem with the Firmware. When the power button was pressed the screen lit up with the Apple logo and then was promptly replaced with the “Connect to iTunes” logo (i.e. the iPod was in Recovery Mode).
