    Hi, I am trying to decide which mp3 player to get. The iPod Classic looks really nice and I've heard good things about the Zune. I am looking for lots of hard drive space, battery life and great technical support. It will be used mostly for music (since I'm a music addict) but I will also watch some movies and tv shows on them too. Being able to listen to the music from the mp3 player to my car would be cool as well. I've heard you can use cassette adaptors or auxilery inputs. The problem is, my car doesn't have any of those so I'm assuming that I'll have to buy a FM transmitter. I've narrowed my choices to the iPod Classic 160GB Black version or the Microsoft Zune 30GB Brown. Would the IME Dock be good for the music in the car? Any help and suggestions for my mp3 player and fm transmitter are greatly appreciated.

    I would go with the iPod if I were you.
    I have one and haven't had any problems with it so far.
    If you want something to play it through a car stereo get Monster Cables or the Tape deck plugin as iTrip has terrible reception.
    Also, the iPod is native to iTunes, so you shouldn't have any trouble syncing songs from your library to the ipod.

    Heres the problem with apple. You HAVE to have itunes installed on your computer to transfer files so it can't really act as a portable hard drive unless itunes is installed. I don't know if that is a big negative factor for you.

    My preference goes to the Ipod. As for the FM transmitter, my friend got one for his Ipod for about 50€, don't know the brand thought...

    This is not true. When I first got my ipod I only used winamp to transfer music and video to it. Now I use itunes b/c I like my album art, but I still use winamp to transfer videos that itunes doesn't add.

    You can use it as a portable hard drive just by hooking it up to your computer. It will appear as another external drive. However any music added will not be added into the Ipod's database and thus will not play. The portable hard drive function is not dependant on Itunes or any other software.
