I too own the 30 GIG classic with video. LOVE MINE! I listen to it morning, noon, and night. In the car, at the gym. I even fall asleep listening to podcasts (do that with the Shuffle on). My car is hooked up to it any time I am in it. It sits by me at work ready to be turned on any second.
I subscribe to over 100 Podcasts including Smodcast, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Real Time with Bill Maher, The Answer Bitch, I Love Movies, Adam Carolla, and of course all the DVD Verdict ones. I am a total addict.
I downloaded a program called Handbrake which allows me to transfer any DVD I own on to the iPod. I also have a laptop sized screen to hook it up to for plane flights.
You will never meet a more rabid iPod fanatic...
