Question selling ipod mini; what do I have to do?

Hey guys, hope everything's going good for you.

Anyways, here's the thing. My buddy's going to be buying the new video-capable ipod, but first he's gonna sell his brand new ipod nano to me for a good price. In turn, I will sell my like-new ipod mini to a second buddy for a good price as well. It's a three way ipod trade, if you will.

So with this in mind, I've decided to get my mini ready to be sold. What should I do? Is there a way to return the mini to its factory settings (ie, delete the music, reset the settings, etc.) so that when I sell it, it'll be as much like new as possible? Also, the person I'm selling it to will most likely use it on a Windows machine, while I use a Mac... is that a factor? So I guess what I'm asking for is advice as how best to prepare the mini before I sell it.

Thanks in advance for any info you guys may have!

Just run the iPod Updater (look under Utilities to find it, or download it from and click the Restore button in there. That'll return the iPod to factory-new settings, and leave it at the language selection menu.
