I need a detailed comparison. Please give me a difference such as, supporting video formats, or ability to play video, etc. If ipod classic can play videos, why is ipod video so expenxive? Can Ipod classic play videos? It seems it can but it doesn't make any sense.

I don't think there is a model called Ipod video..so I assume you mean Ipod touch? According the the specs for the iPOD classic with 120 GB hard drive, you can watch movies, tv shows and music videos on it. It will hold 150 hours of video. As for the iPOD touch, the hard drive is smaller (it comes in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB) and will hold 10, 20 or 40 hours of video. However the iPOD touch has the capability of holding lots of applications and will connnect to a wireless internet connection. I have one and when I travel I am able to connect to the internet since most hotels these days have wirless internet. This is the reason this one costs more. Even though the hard drive is smaller on the iPOD touch, mine has lots of music, some music videos, some television episodes, a book and lots of pictures and I have not used half of my space (mine is a 8 GB).
