    DREMEL IT! MUHAHAHA.

    Or break it and get it Applecared and there will be no engraving.

    Or put a case on it and don't mind it.

    P.S: what kind is it?

    AppleCare will replace the device with a new or refurbished one with the exact same engraving on it.

    Actually, they do. Seeing that I sent my iPod in for repair and it was replaced with a new one with the exact same engraving on the new one. :black:

    If your original iPod was personalized by Apple, your replacement iPod will be automatically personalized with the same text. If your original iPod was custom laser engraved by another company, your replacement iPod will not be personalized.

    Solder gun would just melt the ipod and look bad (as would a dremel)
    and wood filler would just make the letters a different color.

    maybe like that liquid aluminum stuff.

    Well, that would make sense, since they don't have the ability to engrave it at the store. Otherwise, if you send it in through the normal procedure you will get the engraving.

    There are dremel attachments that could remove it and then buff it out, I don't have an iPod with engraving but im guessing it's not very deep

    Yeah, I've seen people do that.

    Just buy a black case though and put it over it.
