There is no Ipod classic 30GB. What Ipod do you have?

@bluebrother: Apple has started referring (http://www.apple.com/quicktime/qtv/specialevent0907/) (watch at 25 minutes in) to the "normal" (not nano, mini, shuffle, or touch) form-factor as "classic".

@che che: See here (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353) to identify which model you have.

You should also re-read the forum guidelines, because "help" is not a descriptive thread title.

cool_walking_, are you sure he isn't talking about the G6 models? Those are the "Classic", but only come as 80 or 160GB models. They also look slightly different (casing).

bluebrother, yes I know about the 6G "Classic", and I do think he probably is talking about the 6G, but I just wanted to tell you about a possible reason for people calling older iPods "Classic".  Since he specified that his iPod is 30GB, it's possible he has a 3G, 4G, or 5G, which Apple has started calling the "Classic" form factor.

The only place they refer to it as the classic is in that video. Even their own support documentation differentiates the "Classic" as the 6th generation iPod only.
