Difference: IdentifyPlayer (r3 vs. r2)
This page lists specific characteristics you can use to identify your player.
Apple has a nice page which provides all information to identify your Ipod model: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61688
If the USB options on your player are "MSC" and "MTP" it's non-R, if they're "Rhapsody" and "PlaysForSure" then it's R. Also, Rockbox doesn't function on the v2 models. The v1 firmware is named 01.xx.xx, while the v2 firmware begins with 03. This version number can be retrieved under Settings->Info.
For the e200 series, there is a sure fire way to identify if it's a vanilla model or rhapsody model. Under Settings->Mode if the player says "MSC" and "MTP", it is a vanilla model; if it says "Rhapsody" and "PlaysForSure", it is an R series. Now, if the package says "Supports audible audio file formats", it is a v2 (it will also probably say "v2" in small letters on the back).
