apple ipods

I got my boc today with a 30GB ipod in it and an ipod nano.....how can I tell what generation they are...and what does that mean anyway??
Oh the nano has no conection cable or headphones. thats why i want to know, so I can get the right conection cable for it from ebay.
thanks.

it does look rather large, as if it could be old. what does it mean anyway? just newer models.
It's the nano i need to know about realy as like i say it came with no cable to conect it so i'll have to buy one.

itll probably be a broken customer return anyway....

lol...why how much are these things worth? my mates bf has already asked if he can have it...I said no to him as well.

If its 4GB, i'd say £20-£40 (depends who is willing to buy it!)

Ill give you £20 for the nano on its own

That is definately a 3rd Gen Nano, and a 5th possibly a 5.5 gen ipod Video.Please god tell me you're not serious!!!!The 1st and 2nd generations weren't 30GB, the first 30GB was the third generation, and the 4th and possibly the 5th aswell.

dean3988;3849190

Why do some people think ipods only came out a year ago, they are currently on the 6th generation and no, they didn't play vidoes before the 5th.

Don't be cheeky!!! I know they have been out ages, but it's all new to me. I don't do technology normally. hence the thread asking for help.

If it's an Ipod video. How do I actually put videos on to it?

Anyone know? pleeeeeeaaasee....

Via itunes like your music but they need to be in the video folder. Also the video file type must be mp4 in order for the ipod to be able to play it
