    Okay I just got a used Ipod touch from a used movies/game place... looks and works great.. but my question is how can I tell what generation it is? Its on 3.0 software but I saw they have a refurb 1st gen at the apple store for cheaper then I got mine. If the one I got is a first generation then Im returning this one and buying from apple.

    First gen touch has no volume control on the side.

    There are other differences, like the first gen is thicker, and it doesn't have a speaker, but you were asking for a quick way to tell whether the ipod you had was first gen, so I gave you the most obvious difference.

    Uh...the 2nd gen's engraving's on the back consists of 4 lines or so, and the 3rd consists of 2 (small print) lines.
