    I just bought a refurb iPod 80. Is there way to tell what generation it is? Apple said it was previous generation. What does that mean? The reason I ask so I know what cases I should be looking at.

    Also as a side note; Can this iPod take the abuse of being online 24/7? I have a iPod 20 (4th generation) and for 4 years I basically had it on 24/7 and it's now starting to fail (When its to play the entire music it will start to play a song then skip to the next song (strange))

    It's a generation 5.5.

    G5 only had 60GB.
    G6 is the new classic.

    for the sake of a case, look for one that says "Video 60GB/80GB"

    So I can install games and movies on it? Forgive me, I haven't had much time to play around it. I am waiting for my power adaptor comes ( I wish I could use my firewire power for my iPod 20. Does it matter that it's black? LOL

    Thanks for letting me know what to look for when it time for to get the case. :D
