    Easy to know.

    If its 8GB then its a 2G.
    If its 32 or 64GB then its a 3G

    the 8gb is also released in the 3g model
    http://www.apple.com/ipodtouch/specs.html
    they eliminated the 16gb and added the 64 gb

    the only difference between the 32 and 64 from the 8 besides the size is the earphones with volume control and mic if im not mistaken

    The one you have is the same one I had,(I traded it in for a 2g 8gb) It is a 3g because it starts with MC, but the hardware and software are exacty the same as a 2g 8gb.
