Which ipod, nano, touch???

Try this link. It helped me to identify mine:

Hope this helps!
Sorry its a really old nano.
1g is shiny and the 2g, it would be a bit easier if you could post a pic of it.

I tried to reply but it said it had to be moderated, I assume as i added a link in. I'll try it this way instead. If you go to ... support dot apple dot com forwardslash kb forwardslash HT1353 ... it will take you to an apple support page showing the differences between the models. (replace the dot with . and forwardslash with /)

Hope this helps! Sorry if this ends up double posting when my other post is moderated.
wow thanks for all your help guys i will rep you all....sadly it is a 1st generation. I didnt realise they did a 4GB in that i seem to remember when we got it the memory had gone up from 1 or 2 GB. Must have still been the same generation though.
Thanks for all your help and photos.
