    For those of you who have one of these, what all exactly do you have hooked up to the drive that comes with it? What are all of the capabilities of this thing?

    I am really thinking hard about getting it but don't really know what I can use all of those ports with.. I need to know the possibilities I can have with this thing if anyone has a list or guide that would be great!!

    To be honest, I thought I could hook up my headphones (with mic) and I found out that I needed an adapter (forgot what they're called). But anyways, I still couldn't get it to work.

    I just got it through Ebay, for about $105 direct through Creative Labs warehouse.

    Yeah I know, but you need a 1/4" plug to connect into that port.

    Mine are only 1/8". I tried the adapter but no cigar, didn't work.
