I remember the good old times ;) --- as if it was so long ago lol --- when car CD Player was way too expensive for me (high school student back then) to purchase. It was the biggest pain, considering the fact that most of my new music was on CD’s. That’s why, when I wanted to listen to some music from a CD while I was driving, I had only two options either copy the CD on a tape or use one of those cheap portable CD Players with a cassette player adapter.

This situation is similar to what many young adults face today; the difference is that they would like their car stereos to play MP3’s. Sure there are a lot of ways that one can have MP3’s playing on their car stereos: through recordable CD’s, mini disc players, and more, but all of those either cost a lot or take up a lot of space. My idea is an affordable alternative. A small hard drive inside one of the cassette player adapters with a small and nice wireless controller. This device would play MP3’s through a car cassette player and it would be invisible during this procedure since it would be a shape of a simple cassette. One would be able to recharge it at home while using a computer to manage different MP3’s that would be stored on the device. There would also be an option to purchase a small adapter to it, that would transform it into a portable MP3 player.

I believe that this would be a big hit. Even I would consider spending $100 for it, considering that usually I belive that those devices are unnecessary.

If this idea had been done before then that's too bad.

Reward: How about giving me some credit for this idea (if it was not invented yet) and couple of those devices (5 is a good number) since this would make for good gifts.

Cool idea, I also remember how long it took for car companies to introduce cd players into cars. They are so slow.

Portable car and portable mp3 player are out there already, save up and update.

Yea, I know, I do live in USA you know --- Poland is just my country of orgin. And I belive that in Poland you can get much better high tech stuff than US.

I did say "Sure there are a lot of ways that one can have MP3’s playing on their car stereos: through recordable CD’s, mini disc players, and more, but all of those either cost a lot or take up a lot of space."

Please pay attention while you read.

this has been out for more years then I care to remember !
http://www.unitec.co.kr/english/product/mp3/rome2.htm

only can get 32mb or 64mb version.

I don't think there is enough space in a cassette to sport a hard drive, circut board and a battery. I think to make it work you would have to go with a MicroDrive (Compact Flash compatible) which would make this player cost upwards of $600 ++

so, forget it, get a real mp3 deck.[/url]
