HT1339: Restoring iPod to factory settings

Learn about Restoring iPod to factory settings

HT1339 I inherited an 80g I-Pod classic (I have two 160g myself).  How do I erase all the information that the other person had on it and make it mine?

I inherited an I-Pod classic (80g) and would like to get it back to the factory settings (as if it were new).  Is it possible to do so and how do I do it?  Do I need to have an  Apple store do it for me?  I also own two 160g I-Pods so I don't want to go into my computers and possibly mess up those libraries.  Any help will be appreciated. 

iPod classic, Windows 7, 80gig
