Car adapter for IPod but want to play my Zune -- help!

by maltezos / March 23, 2008 5:32 AM PDT

I bought a 2006 car used in which the previous owner installed some sort of iPod Interface Adapter to play his IPod in the car. I don't have an IPod, I have a Zune. I would like to know if there is any adapter out there that would plug into both the IPod adapter and also into my Zune, enabling my Zune to play with the existing set up?

I bought this from the dealer and so they knew little about the exact product that was installed (done after-market) but I can tell you that it's supposed to play an IPod through the car speakers. Instead of me uninstalling this and re-installing something that would play my Zune, I want to see if an adapter exists that would make this conversion easy.

I would simply buy a fm transmitter that plugs into your headphone output on your zune and your off and running. Works great on any car stereo. If your car has an input port, similar to a headphone port, buy that cord and plug it in and your good to go

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
