Which Cassette Adapter


#1

Hey everyone.

My car doesnt have a CD player, so I found something called a "Cassette Adapter" which you could plug your mp3 player into the cassette and then plug that into the car, which would play your music.

I just bought one and the stupid shit won't work. It keeps popping out. I read some where that the new ones aren't compatible with a "logic deck".

Can someone recommend a cassette adapter for my mp3 and car?

Thanks.

There are lot of them that broadcast on FM, so you wouldn't have to worry about the cassette working.

The FM ones are pieces of shit. You won't ever find a free frequency to use it on, so you'll always have a little static from local radio stations. Even if you don't have any interference, I've heard the sound quality isn't that great.

Haha

I got one of those Creative Zen mp3 players.

I don't think its worth it to buy a cd player for my car and install it, so I was hoping for something cheap like this.

I got an old 86 car, and im not happy with the radio.

The links posted is for iriver isnt it? I wonder if its compatible with my thing.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thankss

I've never had a problem finding a frequency, and I live in a town of about 300,000 people (plus Mexican stations). The sound quality is FM radio, not CD obviously. However I had several of the cassette adapters in the past, and they all went to shit pretty fast.
