    I ordered an ipod that is supposed to be a "32gb 3rd generation" ipod that was used. Is there anyway (a setting perhaps?) to see if I have the 3rd generation and not the 2nd?

    See if it has an mc on the serial. By going into about in the settings section. That's the only way.

    I have a MC, and 2 big lines on the back. And spirit says i have a 2nd Gen.
    Also on the apple support, when i put my serial code it says i have a 2nd Gen...
    So i don't think that's true

    The IPT3G 8GB is the EXACT same as the 2nd gen.
    Besides the fact that it costs more money...
